Form takes two forms. A family of delicate handmade dishes and a sophisticated solid brass tea set. The bowls are inspired by the perfectly formed wooden containers used by Jain monks for food and storage. The tea set calls back to a forgotten era and the sophisticated way to serve British afternoon tea, while hinting at an art deco aesthetic with a touch of Gatsby glamour.

The Form Tea Set is an attempt to regain some ceremonial high ground for the modern age and a powerful symbol of Britishness.
What to expect from Form
Form bowls are rough and regal, humble in their simplicity with a precious gold colouring that helps any snack appear a feast. They are hand formed from single sheets of brass or copper and are not lacquered or treated with any sealant at all. The Form Tea Set is made from spun brass, with Bakelite insulating handles, and dipped in a warm-gold wash. In both cases, the finish will slowly develop a unique patina as it oxidises. To prevent this, use it for decorative purposes only, or with dry food only. Humidity and liquids will accelerate the process of oxidisation. Not dishwasher safe.
