Discriminating design is indispensable for independent designers and makers. But the quality of the design itself has long since ceased to be a guarantor of success in an era when everything can be imitated and produced in countries where wages are low. What’s in demand now is the authentic, very special story behind the things. For example, the tales told by Louisa Taylor of London, whose fascination with historical tableware prompted her to develop a surprising concept. Born in 1980, this ceramicist shows that the theoretical and historical approach to tableware and dining customs is anything but dry and that it can result in inspiring ideas and highly sensual products.
