Being obsessed with beautiful teacups and teapots, in fact anything tea related means it is inevitable I was going to be captivated by these lovely tea sets by Julie Spurgeon.  I was lucky enough to chat to Julie and she told me about the inspiration behind them – fond childhood memories of the tea making ritual, the pleats and folds in the porcelain reminiscent of things like cupcake cases.

The above pieces are from her Material Pleasures collection which are currently featured in the exhibition Teapots to Tapestries, and available to buy at Fortnum and Mason.
