Claricesq_450x450d
Admirers of the designers like Clarice Cliff, Susie Cooper and Charles Rennie Mackintosh may want to investigate the work of Emma Dolan and her twentieth-century design tea cups.

Hand-crafted in Yorkshire, Emma recreates their designs using embroidery combined with traditional materials such as Harris tweed and Hainsworth felt. The result are stylish in their own right, such as the Clarice cup pictured which obviously references a Clarice Cliff design. 

Pieces are priced individually but, to give you an idea of price, the Clarice cup costs £160.
