We’re big fans of vintage enamel homewares. The process involves paint actually being baked onto metal, glass or ceramics. Used in all manner of household items, it’s practical, hard wearing and incorporates some fantastic colours & patterns. Also, a bit of wear and tear is no bad thing – a few small chips and dents create a lovely, homely, lived-in patina – not always the case with other materials such as pottery and glass.
