London potter, Linda Bloomfield, makes handmade tableware for new café at the Royal Albert Hall

29 Apr 2013

London catering company “rhubarb” has commissioned potter Linda Bloomfield to design and make tableware for their new café in the Royal Albert Hall, opening in May 2013.  The pieces will be a mixture of hand thrown and manufactured plates, bowls, cappuccino cups and saucers, teapots, mugs, milk jugs and sugar bowls. Linda Bloomfield will be throwing over 300 pieces in her studio in west London and also designing some new pieces for manufacture in the UK.

Studio potter Linda Bloomfield has designed a range of tableware to look and feel like her hand-thrown pieces. They have colour on the inside and a tactile satin matt glaze on the outside. The colours are inspired by midcentury modern design: turquoise, green and grey. The range includes mugs, bowls, plates, jugs and teapots. The mugs have hand-knitted cosies by knitwear designer Ruth Cross.

Since January 2011, “rhubarb” at the Royal Albert Hall have been providing all the food and drink at one of the UK’s most prestigious venues. They are planning to open the new café in May 2013.
