Snowden Flood Post Office Tower mug
This new mug from Snowden Flood celebrates one of London most famous examples of 60s architecture – the Post Office Tower (otherwise known as the BT Tower).
Fairground mugs from Snowden Flood
Snowden Flood has been featured quite a few times on this site before: for her work featuring famous London landmarks and her take on design classics. A slightly different type of style is evident in her new range but still one that's pleasingly retro – as demonstrated with these fairground mugs.
The mugs feature illustrations influenced by traditional British folk art – indeed as the name suggests they are influenced by old-fashioned funfair signage. Each mug is decorated in a different colour with a different fairground ride style slogan.
The bone china mugs also draw on another British tradition in their manufacture as they are made in Stoke-On-Trent.
You can buy the mugs individually for £18.50 or as a set of four for £70.

Snowden Flood Battersea toile fabric plate
This isn't the first time we've featured the iconic outline of Battersea power station and I doubt it will be the last. It's not the first time we've featured a Snowden Flood take on it either. However, the design is given a new twist with Snowden Flood's Battersea toile fabric plate.
Unlike her usual designs, which normally feature a plain, colourful outline of the building, here she's gone much further back in the history of textiles for inspiration – to the eighteenth century no less – and filled the outline with a pretty pastoral toile pattern. The contrast works really well and hints at something of the long history of the Thames and its activities.
It's an unusual piece that costs £35.
