Ceramic Swan Vases - Reclaiming British Ceramics.
Volpe and Volpe was born from founder Trish Scorgie’s passion for ceramics and Britain’s golden age of manufacturing. Having scoured second hand shops to build a collection of vintage ceramic swan vases, it occurred to her that they could be updated for modern homes by creating an edition in more contemporary colours. It was essential to her that this most British of ornaments be made right here in the UK, and she has sourced manufacturers in the traditional heartland of British ceramics, Stoke on Trent.
Trish’s instinct was spot on. Volpe and Volpe won Best Newcomer at the East London Design Show 2012 and the swans were quickly stocked by influential boutique stores, from super-stylist Emily Chalmers’ shop Caravan to Britain’s most famous collector, Paul Smith and cult online homewares emporium Rockett St George.
Britain's leading Florists Scarlet & Violet and Rebel Rebel have also stocked Volpe and Volpe pieces, and Wild at Hearts Nikki Tibbles dressed the swans for the Cover of Living Etc.
