Home - Designers & Collections - Sailor's Farewell by Kit Kemp - Sailor's Farewell Tea Cup & Saucer

Sailor's Farewell Tea Cup & Saucer

The Sailor's Farewell is the second collaboration between Wedgwood and renowned, award-winning interior designer Kit Kemp. Kit's style is about whimsical storytelling, colour and imagination and the Sailor's Farewell is derived from a fabric she designed for Chelsea Textiles, inspired by a beautiful drawing by John Craxton depicting a Sailor's wife waving farewell. Blending Kit's love of craft and simple, lyrical folk art, the sailor's loved-one is waving goodbye on a rock with her scarf flying in the wind. As she waves the witty motifs around each china piece show the sailor's adventures on the high seas, both above and below the waterline. The rust red sails of his sailing ship pass by whales and merfolk fishing, there are two little dogs alone on the high seas, seagulls flying above the lighthouse, and the enticing sight of a house under a palm tree on a faraway desert island. Below in the depths is a frogman, a curious octopus and the flashing fins of many fish. The delicate pale blue linen finish of the original fabric design is discernible on the table ware with a stronger blue and 22 carat gold hand applied lining around the rim. The Kit Kemp - Sailor's Farewell collection celebrates Wedgwood's heritage and quality since 1759, the British craftsmanship and techniques applied in its factory in Barlaston, Staffordshire forming a perfect partnership with Kit's stylish, enchanting and whimsical design.
