David Stonehouse Espresso Mug



Cambridge-based potter David Stonehouse has created this collection of wheel-thrown stoneware exclusively for Kettle's Yard. The range is inspired by his frequent visits to Jim Ede’s beautiful Kettle’s Yard home, and references some of its familiar motifs and hidden treasures. Some pieces are one-offs while others are repeated with subtle variations.

Espresso Mug (single)

  • Height: 6cm
  • Diameter: 6cm
  • Width: 8cm
  • Volume: 100ml

Available in four designs:

Lemon references the fresh lemon on the pewter platter in the dining room, which itself echoes the yellow dot in Joan Miró’s Tic Tic painting nearby. Buff stoneware with shiny white glaze.

Vein, inspired by some of the pebbles which Jim so carefully selected and arranged. Buff stoneware with shiny white glaze and matt blue-black line.

Collage utilises a torn paper technique employed by a number of artists on display in the House. White stoneware, transparent glaze over black and white underglazes.

Blue-black takes its colour from Gaudier-Brzeska’s Dog and other bronzes in the House. Buff stoneware with shiny black glaze.

Yellow takes its cues from the fresh lemon, the daffodils of Christopher Wood's Flower and the yellow dot in Mirós Tic Tic, from the sitting room. White Stoneware, shiny yellow and transparent glaze.


Please note that due to the hand-making process, the nature of the materials, and interactions in firing, all pieces and finishes are unique and will have subtle variations.

About David Stonehouse:

David is a Cambridge-based designer-maker, who combines contemporary design with traditional craftsmanship to produce refined objects. He uses a restricted palette of materials to allow these to be at the forefront of each piece, often celebrating the tactile contrast between raw clay and glazed areas. His hand-thrown domestic ware is the product of an ongoing refinement of form, function and detailing, to enrich everyday occasions. Although striving for consistency, he values the variation that hand-crafting produces, which he sees as helping to connect the user with the maker.
