The National Trust
Sail Blue National Trust Mug
Hand-finished with the symbol of National Trust pressed into each mug’s base alongside Keith’s maker’s mark, the Sail Blue colour of the traditional, wash glazed upper has a translucent quality that juxtaposes with the matt, uncoated finish of the exposed ceramic base. This combination of textures on the National Trust mugs echoes the opulent luxury of the UK’s historic castles & mansions and the raw beauty of our coastlines.
Like the places in their care, the official National Trust mug range is intended to be used and enjoyed by current & future generations, so every mug is dishwasher & microwave safe.
The Sail Blue mug is part of The Keith Brymer Jones National Trust Collection.
With its subtle cool-blue pigments, Sail Blue is reminiscent of the sea & skies around the British coast. It is a lighter, gentler hue than the Cobalt Blue, but with the same depth and, depending on the light and time of day, a shifting of shades between blue and green.
The beautifully-crafted Keith Brymer Jones National Trust collection features six mugs in clean & understated hues. National Trust look after significant places of beauty & heritage sites, along with a million works of art, throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The design of the Keith Brymer Jones National Trust Collection was inspired by the rich and contrasting locations in the care of the National Trust, from the many stunning historic buildings & well-tended gardens to the raw natural beauty of our majestic coastlines and countryside.
With Keith’s signature subtlety and style, he managed to mirror those extremes by juxtaposing a traditional Sail Blue wash glaze with a raw exposed ceramic base. Every Keith Brymer Jones National Trust mug is hand-finished, with the National Trust symbol pressed into the base alongside Keith’s maker’s mark.
