Tea for II at National Memorial Arboretum

Fabrication of Tea for II, an installation to mark VJ Day at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. We created a set of 20 tiled benches, designed by Ceramic Design students at Central St Martins college, and inspired by the Staffordshire pottery industry and the street parties that marked the end of World War II. The benches are made of exterior birch ply with hardwood edging, finished with tiles  reminiscent of traditional brown glazed tea pots, of the kind popularly used in the 1940s.
