Tabletop: We Love Karou Nautical Dinnerware

BY Christine Chang Hanway

On a recent shopping jaunt in Shoreditch, Julie and I discovered the work of Karou Parry, a 2008 graduate of Central St. Martins who set up her ceramics design studio We Love Karou to promote and preserve the rich heritage of craftsmanship and quality within the British ceramics industry. We especially like her whimsical Nautical Range (each and every blue line has been hand painted by traditional artisans of Stoke-on-Trent); perfect for summer. See the range at Luna & Curious a collective boutique in Shoreditch, or go to We love Karou for more information.
