Anna Smyth Ceramic Vessels


Anna has used her own family history to inform this collection of thrown, decorated porcelain vessels, celebrating our once great linen industry.

Each bobbin shaped piece represents a linen worker, each wearing decoration which symbolises their relationship to the mill, their work and each other.

These are individually created ceramic pieces, which means that no two will be identical.  Whilst intended to be displayed as a pair, they are available for individual purchase. Packaged in beautiful  gift boxes which are free of charge whilst stocks last.
