a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Harley Boden produces exquisite, fine, decorative ceramics with themes based around the natural world.
His charming and elegant debut collection, Carr consists of four cups and saucers entitled ‘Fen', ‘Bracken', ‘Fungi' and ‘Stag'. The wares explore the notion of woodland, offering crisp, inky depictions of nature's undergrowth, bug life and abstract botanicals. Some of Boden's illustrations are highlighted with 18 carat gold lustre.
Marrying traditional techniques with contemporary design, Harley uses an artisan processes throughout. His drawings are applied, by hand, onto fine English bone china. The process used to produce his collections is made in one of the few remaining manufactures in Staffordshire, which is known worldwide for its distinguished history of manufacturing the highest quality fine porcelain.
