Daisy has developed a working relationship with a UK based ceramic manufacturer and supplier of industrial ceramics.
This has involved producing ranges for companies such as Marks & Spencer and other High Street stores.
Bespoke ranges are also in development for example, for a UK textile company who wish to have a more ‘artisan’ range of ceramics; the initial product ideas were developed by both parties, each presenting their visual ideas and combining them to produce a ceramic range reflecting that company’s creative aspirations and signature.
Once this first stage is established Daisy hand makes the prototypes to finished product, the client can then handle the actual glazed and finished piece facilitating the selection for factory production.
The key aim for Daisy in working with clients is to combine the understanding of current market trends, as well as tease out and reflect the real heart of the company.
At the start of 2017, Daisy began an exciting new collaboration with a Chinese ceramics factory. Spending several weeks in the factory Daisy has developed several new ranges of shapes for the world retail market which will be launched at the Canton fair in China in April. New reactive glazes and patterns have been developed with the very talented glaze Technician ‘May’ at the factory, some of which are in stark contrast to her country slipware style. The greens reflect a visit to the Scottish Orkney Islands and the texture and colour of derelict farm building walls.
