Inspired by The World Food Garden at RHS Wisley, the new glassware features flowers and bees. The focus is on edible flowers grown on site at Wisley that Emma has drawn and painted from her own photographs. Each design has been translated on to glass in her studio in Derbyshire and has summer very much in mind. This is a practical as well as pretty range of tableware that would look stunning for alfresco dining or celebrating at a Coronation party.

Each piece of glassware has been etched with lemons, alliums, artichoke, lilies, marigolds, calendula, centaurea and hyssop in a pretty repeated design. The range includes brightly coloured glasses in blue, green and orange and for the first time a swing top bottle and two preserve jars.

“With this new collection I was inspired by the petal shapes and the way the plants are grown in Wisley’s World Food Garden. Edible flowers lend a nod to the way kitchen gardeners might use the practical pieces in this new collection for homemade cordials and jams that will look stunning on those larder shelves,” says Emma.
