Feldspar is a family run design brand creating timeless handmade homewares from our workshop in rural Devon. We make ‘objects for life’ — useful everyday items intended to be treasured.
Feldspar began in late 2016 after Jeremy and Cath Brown moved from London to the wilds of Dartmoor in Devon for a slower pace of life and some (head)space. Before they knew it, they’d bought a pottery wheel and made a 20-piece dinner set in time for Christmas. Their ethos was to create ‘objects for life’ — beautiful things made properly and to last, with an elegant and simple aesthetic to weather the trends of time.
Inspired by items their grandparents used daily that were fifty, or even 300 years old and still serving their purpose perfectly, Jeremy and Cath began by making a mug for coffee — with a wonky profile to sit perfectly in the hand (mugs are only cylindrical because they are easier to make that way) and a fine handle hand-painted in a deep Cobalt blue to echo the palette of classic chinaware. Made out of fine bone china (the strongest type of ceramic) by a family pottery in Stoke on Trent.
Find out how Feldspar began on the Monocle podcast, from an impulsive move to Dartmoor to making enough plates and bowls to ensure our families had something to eat off when they came to stay...
"Together, Cath and Jeremy have come up with a winning formula that combines a seemingly endless list of ideas and a good dollop of chutzpah with a genuine ability to craft beautiful things."
