UK delivery £4.40 - Free delivery on orders over £60!

The salvaged saucers were the inspiration for this collaboration which highlights the plight of insects. They have been re-fired with additions and married with a new matching cup.

The design on the cup puts the insects in the negative to show their loss, with different vintage butterfly transfers on the inside.

The centre of the saucer reads 'The present threat to mankind's survival can be removed only by a revolutionary change of heart in individual human beings'.

The underside of the saucer reads 'The world's insects are spiraling down the path to extinction, threatening a massive collapse of nature's ecosystems. More than 40% or insect species are declining and a third are endangered. we are losing 2.5% of total mass of insects a year. Unless we change our ways of producing food, insects as a whole will go down the path of extinction in a few decades with globally catastrophic repercussions. ' (Global Scientific Review 2019)

A limited edition of 86 bone china cups and saucers.
