The Feldspar Collection: Objects for Life

The Feldspar Collection: Objects for Life
In Article, News

Feldspar: an amalgamation of tenacious minerals that make up most of the earth’s crust. An essential ingredient of ceramics and glass that ensures resilience, Feldspar is the embodiment of longevity, vitality and natural beauty.

Born in an old farmhouse in Dartmoor amidst Devon’s rolling moors, homeware company ‘Feldspar’ defies the norm. Cath and Jeremy Brown, the founders, owners and designers of Feldspar ‘Objects for Life’, make it their mission to design and create timeless, elegant pieces to be enjoyed for a lifetime.

Each Feldspar piece, from the fine bone China mugs to the handmade soy wax candles, is unusual in its simplicity. Cath explains that, whilst every object must ultimately be “very functional and necessary”, each one is designed with a touch of fun.

“It’s that timelessness that some objects have that inspires us – objects that don’t subscribe to trends, that are beautifully made and will last for generations”

The Feldspar collection began with sophisticatedly simple fine bone China mugs, detailed with an elegant cobalt or gold handle. There is a twist: rather than taking on the cylindrical shape of most mugs, Feldspar designs are dimpled for a unique – and comfortable – effect.

“The surface of our mugs makes them look wobbly, which is unusual for a fine bone China mug. They’re much harder to make this way – but much nicer to hold in your hands.”

Other products in the collection include vases of different sizes and shapes – some are completely white, others have an alluring gold finish that reflects light in a resplendent glow.

Each Feldspar piece is designed and prototyped by Cath and Jeremy in their “middle-of-nowhere” farmhouse studio. Despite the minimalism of the designs, a lot of thought goes in to each piece:

“We normally have quite a set idea about what type of object we want to make. We’re pretty brutally honest with each other, which is great, hilarious and frustrating in equal measure. If we’re not both really happy with the final prototype, we’ll go back to the drawing board.”

While Cath’s original background is in architecture, Jeremy trained in furniture and product design, so the idea of designing and producing their own homeware was always on the cards.

“We were always those people who’d see things in a shop and want to make them better, so it was a natural progression into making our own things… and then we just couldn’t stop.”

The most recent additions to the collection are a variety of handmade soaps – Ash, Moor and Kelp – inspired by the wild Devon countryside in which the Feldspar brand grows.

Every Feldspar design echoes beloved objects of yesteryear – and each of these ‘Objects for Life’ is created to be enjoyed for many years to come.
