This month I have teamed up with Ogetto Home, a gorgeous on-line home store. Oggetto (pronounced or-jet-oh) is the Italian word for object. The store was founded by Helen and Charlie Camm who with a background in the creative industries and a shared passion for interiors, they have carefully curated a collection of simple, functional and thoughtfully designed products for everyday use in the home.
From their home in Dorset in South West England, they design and source products from designers, makers, artisans and small producers in the UK and around the world with a simple understated aesthetic and timeless appeal.
Oggetto are kindly giving away a set of hand-thrown stoneware mugs and teapot by John Leach. John is the eldest grandson of renowned potter Bernard Leach and son of David Leach, and continues the family tradition at Muchelney Pottery on the Somerset levels. Each piece is hand-thrown using local clays then wood fired in the kiln at temperatures exceeding 1300°C which creates the distinctive ‘toasted’ finish.
I grew up living on the Somerset levels, so using a mug made from local clays is so very lovely, makes my morning cup of tea so very special.
If you would like to win the two mugs and the teapot all you need to do is enter an image on Instagram under the hashtag #natureinthehome. Your image must show your found, foraged, gathered or grown items from nature. This can be anything from seed heads, shells, flowers, fir cones, leaves etc.
