About Us









 II had the idea for mugs with information on them in 2010.  It was really intended to be a one-off project: I wanted to produce some history mugs with dates to mug up on and thus remember.


The mugs took off, with customers ranging from Liberty to the National Portrait Gallery, the British Library, the Freud Museum and so on.  And so the mugs grew and grew in number and then I added tea towels, aprons and coasters.   And the more people I have, the more I want to do.....  The project is, of course, endless.


I focus on selling direct to customers these days as though I might go back towards retail customers at some point.



The bone china is really good quality, and the thin lip adds to the pleasure of drinking.

I used to work in television, and only paint and draw as a sideline.  I held several exhibitions of my work but now, with Cole of London, I'm constantly at it, which I love.

We are keen to hear any feedback from our customers, so if you have any comments to make about our range of mugs, or requests for future ranges, or if there are any other ways we can help you, please let us know.
