Next of Kin Handmade was founded in 2016 by Fiona and Suzanne, a creative mother-daughter team who joined forces to bring into the world a simple, loveable pottery mug.
Next of Kin is about moving away from fast-paced consumption and towards wholesome little chunks of time that really feed the soul. Each Next of Kin mug is handcrafted and stoneware fired by Fiona in their North Queensland studio, making every mug a little bit different and unique. This time consuming, handmade process informs Next of Kin’s ethos of slowing down and paying attention to the magic of life's little moments.
Fiona is the true artist behind the brand, with over 30 years experience in ceramics and a Fine Arts Degree from Wolverhampton Polytechnic in England, she handcrafts every single Next of Kin product. Suzanne is a graphic designer with a business degree and a love of the beauty in simplicity, she is in charge of the creative direction of the brand.
In addition to the Original Next of Kin mug, at The Finders Keepers AW17 markets, Next of Kin will present to you 'The Slow Seasons' - a tableware collection inspired by Autumn/Winter, designed and made exclusively for sale at Finders Keepers.
