The Revival trend is certainly here to stay well in to 2017, an abundance of Retro references featured at this year’s event giving a nod to the past but with a modern twist. Voluptuous lava blob shaped vases are sandblasted to give a frostier finish and Moon crater shaped bowls are lifted in to space with a vibrant pop of colour applied to the interior.



Delicious sherbet hues, Hard candy glazes and rose coloured glass also featured heavily across the fair from tinted tealight holders to lustrous tableware. Colour blocking was also key with exhibitors making the most of the beautiful pastel brights which featured on everything, and I mean everything … even colanders!
