This beautiful ceramic design, inspired by the land and seascape of Cornish coves, was the winning entry in a competition Rick Stein launched to final year design students at Falmouth University, Cornwall to create his new tabletop collection.
Coves from north Cornwall have been hand-painted in watercolour showing the depth and colour variations in the sea. The clean design and form of bone china complements the subtly changing shades of each cove resulting in a unique and highly collectible range of coastal tableware.
This is a set of 4 cereal bowls and comes gift boxed. The 4 cereal bowls included in this set are Daymer Bay, St. George’s Cove, Trevone Bay and Constantine Bay. Here are Rick’s memories of these coves:
Daymer Bay – “I can’t walk along the sands here without thinking of John Betjeman and ‘sand in the sandwiches, wasps in the tea’.”
St. George’s Cove -“The nearest little beach to the town of Padstow with a mystical well in the valley behind.”
Trevone Bay – “Scene of a little barbecue of Cornish sardines watched avidly by Chalky, my late and much lamented Jack Russell.”
Constantine Bay -“Barbecues and folk songs in the dunes in the ’60s. Everyone surfing at high tide. Stern warnings from my parents of dangerous rips when it was low.”
The cereal bowls have a diameter of 13cm and are 6cm tall. Dishwasher, microwave and oven safe to 200 degrees.
