Washed Up Design

ArtForm: City Showcase Markets

Washed Up is an independent studio with two homes, London and Whitstable, in Kent.

The Washed Up benchmark is to create beautifully handmade, tableware with a detailed aesthetic, that is fit for function in the home, and re- ignites the sentimental memories we all have connected to the British coast, and the igniting connection of exploring London.

With their first collection of illustrated beach huts and seagulls, which exhibited part of the Blue and White Ceramics exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, their latest collection takes inspiration from the riverside walks of London, illustrating the key iconic points of the big
smoke. Hand drawn by Lorna, these stories are then lovingly placed by hand onto Georgie’s handmade ceramics.

Each piece is made using the industrial method of slip casting with white earthenware, then glazed with a transparent glaze, and the final process is placing the illustrations on by hand which are printed as transfers.
