“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be beautiful or believe to be useful”, William Morris 1880.
Available for the first time at Shrewsbury Food festival, June 2023 – we are delighted to share our Arts and Crafts inspired trivet with you. Drawing, quite literally, on the inspiration of the Arts and Crafts movement, which was itself inspired by the ideas of historian Thomas Carlyle, art critic John Ruskin, and designer William Morris, we have created this beautiful and useful trivet. Made from our iconic black iron, this trivet can be used to hold anything from your teapot to casserole. The oak feet will sit comfortably on your worktops and dining tables, protecting them from heat. Our design ethos across the entire range stems from the Arts and Crafts movement, which emerged from the attempt to reform design and decoration in mid-19th century Britain. It was a reaction against a perceived decline in standards that the reformers associated with machinery and factory production. Their critique was sharpened by the items that they saw in the Great Exhibition of 1851, which they considered to be excessively ornate, artificial, and ignorant of the qualities of the materials used. That approach may seem old fashioned, but we actually believe their thinking was far sighted and our belief in knowing the provenance of our materials and seeking local supplies wherever possible bears this out.
