Portmeirion Sara Miller
Sara Miller was named the “Most Promising Young Designer 2016” in the prestigious “Henrie Awards”. It is with these impressive credentials she has decided to work with Portmeirion to produce a collection of bone china mugs. Sara’s love of print, pattern and colour translates beautifully into the quirky and colourful bird and animal designs she has chosen to use on her range of mugs. Sara’s passion for travel and different cultures helps her to reinterpret her designs with a new and refreshing eye. The aloof Genteel Giraffe
not only wears the expression of superiority but the witty inclusion of the bow tie by Sara, softens the image and injects a little humour. One of the most impressive birds, the Flamingo, with its pink plumage and long legs, which bend in the wrong direction, and also defy gravity by supporting the birds weight individually is a surprise of nature. The Flamingo could not be considered a “shrinking violet” in the ornithological world but the Flamboyant Flamingo
goes a little further by sporting an impressive gold crown. Combining the attributes of the birds she has seen in her travels, the Opulent Owl
has all the innate wisdom of our traditional view of the bird, but on this mug he now has the colourful plumage of a Bird of Paradise topped off with a golden crown. The final crown wearer in the Sara Miller Collection is the Terrific Toucan
. With its bright yellow beak and black and white plumage, the Toucan is a striking bird. All Sara Miller Mugs are accented with gold detailing around the rim. Made in Portmeirion’s finest bone china and backed by Portmeirion’s world recognised quality, Sara Miller mugs are supplied in coordinated gift boxes and make perfect gifts for someone special.
