Mondays are for Mugs: We Love Karou

Start this Monday with an optical illusion (probably best avoided for anyone recovering from Glastonbury excesses this morning though) with this Basilica 1 mug from We Love Karou

I know this brand best for the brilliant stripes in their popular Breakfast range (which I also love natch). But it's great to see another excellent collection of mugs from these British ceramicists in a cool monochrome palette and this subtle eye bending illusion. 

The designs are based on 17th Century Venetian church tiles and the gold highlights are proper 22 carot gold and painted on in Stoke on Trent where the whole bone china collection is made. Very nice indeed.
