Milly Dent Design.

Milly Dent Design reimagines daily routine through uniquely handcrafted, exclusive ceramic goods.

Handmade by Milly using small-scale production methods along with distinctive marbling and geometric pattern work, the result challenges conventional expectations of tableware. 

Inspired by the natural world, the vessels invariably display a whirlpool of inky blues frozen in the fluidity that they are created.

The underlying philosophy is based on the simple ideal of producing work that results in outcomes which are both utilitarian and sculptural.
