Description

At Haus of Lucy we get through approximately 20 000 cups of tea a day and have always associated drinking tea with community, the sharing of news and gossip, a sense of belonging. We wanted to create a sculpture of a traditional cuppa to evoke those feelings of comfort and nostalgia. This tea sculpture is made from a mixture of mortar, resin and ceramic paint which we used to colour the resin, always with a cup of tea freshly made for colour reference. We wanted to present the tea in Beryl Ware, which was produced and designed during the war, when shortages decried that design should be simple and use as few resources as possible. Beryl Ware is synonymous with jumble sales and school cheese & wine nights and church halls and represents community, so no other crockery would have been suitable.
Fool your friends when they come round for a cuppa and you pretend to trip up upon presenting this and laugh at the look of horror on their faces.

Need to know

This tea sculpture measures 16.5cm in diameter and weighs 480g. Signed by the artist, this plate is an original 1/1.

I'm Haus Of Lucy, a contemporary multi-media artist. I am obsessed with marrying together the old fashioned and unloved with the contemporary, whether it's an oil painting, a ceramic figurine or a vintage plate.

Since quitting my old life as a magazine designer, I have worked with Adidas, Footlocker, Lazy Oaf, Primark and Greggs (I'm STILL waiting for that lifetime's supply of vegan sausage rolls).

I thrive on creating a contrast between old and new, urban and classic.
