Christmas Gifts to Cherish from Snowden Flood
by Josie Mills
Designer-maker Snowden Flood has grown popular for her range of iconic London landmark products as well as her Art Deco prints, and graphic trees printed onto drinking glasses and candles. Snowden’s collection is inspired by her love of souvenirs. Whilst living in New York in the 1990s she would try to find well-designed, good quality, souvenirs and gifts to take back. Unable to find such souvenirs, Snowden set about making her own for London when she moved back. Inspired by a Tower of London plate, made in the 1700s, she developed her own designs into ceramic products, which began the start of her beautiful series of iconic London landmark homewares.
Snowden Flood, was selected to be part of Christmas Present a Christmas pop-up shop taking place at the Geffrye Museum. Hidden Art Christmas Present coincides with Christmas Past, an exhibition that has taken place at the Geffrye for over 25 years.
Snowden’s products make great gifts for those hard-to-buy-for men in your life. The Tree Glasses set, which come in black or white are a great solution! Perfect for a whisky drinker, the glasses are sturdy and heavy in hand, making them fantastic for a drink beside a roaring winter fire.
Snowden’s products combine luxury with personality, to guarantee your gifts will show you’ve put thought into your purchase. Each mug, plate, glass or bauble that is made in Stoke on Trent goes through a process whereby 20 people have been involved in the making; from preparing the artwork to printing, mixing colours, decorating the pieces, firing and packing. Snowden’s collection is the definition of quality over quantity, whereby she does not deal with the mass production market and instead produces something of beautiful quality every time. What is unique about Snowden’s collection is that you know the history and production of your purchase.
