Based in Glasgow and founded by Krista Blake and Stuart White, Narrative is an “arty collective shop” that utilises the talents of its members to create handmade limited edition goods. Their wares are not only beautifully designed but also charmingly tongue-in-cheek. Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was the clever inspiration for Stuart White’s Drink Me bone china mug and Emma Houlston (remember her from this post?) has obviously taken heed of the old-fashioned advice dished out by pensioners with her Harrow Ladies Luncheon Club Plate Set. Really, in some cases it is probably not a bad idea to have a plate that pictures the stern face of a nana-type reminding you not to put your elbows on the table.
