Cobalt Blue National Trust Mug
Cobalt Blue National Trust Mug is part of the Keith Brymer Jones National Trust Collection. A colourful range of six mugs, partially-glazed in clean & understated hues. Keith created the colours to reflect the dramatic coastlines, wide open landscapes, historic architecture and treasure trove of arts & antiques that he discovered while visiting National Trust locations.
The mugs in the Keith Brymer Jones National Trust Collection are individually hand-finished with the maker’s marker pressed into the exposed porcelain base alongside the instantly-recognisable leaf motif of National Trust.
The Cobalt Blue National Trust Mug is part of the Keith Brymer Jones National Trust Collection. There are six clean & understated colours in the range, partially-glazed with an exposed porcelain base. Each hue is inspired by different aspects of the National Trust and English countryside.
The intense hue of cobalt blue has featured in eighth-century Chinese blue & white pottery and, by the 1800s, it was the pigment of choice for Turner, Renoir, Monet & Van Gogh when capturing the sky. The rich heritage of cobalt blue inspired Keith’s choice of this vivid and graphic hue for his National Trust Collection.
Keith designed a shape that sits cosily in the hand, providing a comforting, homely experience when in use. His technical skills as a master ceramicist also ensure that the traditional feel of these mugs comes without the need to compromise on practicality, as his modern technique and choice of materials create a porcelain finish that is hard-wearing, dishwasher safe & microwave safe.
