Lou Rota London

As one of our regular exhibitors and co-founders, Lou Rota is a well known member of our Homeworks team. For the past twelve months Lou has been fine tuning her fantastic
and collectible bird, bug and floral designs and now launches Lou Rota London, a range
of exquisite fine bone china handcrafted in Staffordshire.
Lou explains “I wanted to design a setting to be cherished as an heirloom yet enjoyed throughout the day, sparking smiles amongst family and friends.”

Lou oversees and designs every tiny detail, from the shape of the new bowls and mugs to the iridescent flamingos, hummingbirds and chameleons which have been paired with Lou’s own beautiful botanical illustrations. Little surprises here and there add a touch of Lou’s trademark wit and eccentricity.

To get your hands on some of this festive finery and fun, pop along to one of our Christmas Bazaars at The Salusbury Rooms in December (check the sidebar for details of all this year’s stallholders), where Lou will be selling her new bone china collections.
We’re proud to have played a part in Lou’s growing empire and we can't wait to see what she does next (we do know it will be gorgeous and we want it already...)
