I’m David Herbert and I love ceramics. I collect them, write about them and now design and decorate them.
My ceramic designs are inspired by the artists of the Bloomsbury Group, namely Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant and are colourful, highly decorative, affordable, collectable and hopefully extremely likeable. They are designed to bring some fun to your tea drinking.
Circles, squares, foliage, flowers, bands of colours and colourful borders all became distinctive features of the Bloomsbury decorative style and I continue this theme.
I studied ceramic design and production at college and I currently work from home with a small kiln and a lot of enthusiasm. Everything is hand done from the drawing of the designs to the finished product.
My ceramic designs suggest a zest for life and an enjoyment of ones surroundings and I hope you enjoy them. They are made in England, using bone china blanks produced at Stoke on Trent. They are also dishwasher safe.
