RIPPED OFF BY URBAN OUTFITTERS

I’m completely gutted today to find a blatant rip off of a recent collection I made for Liberty London being sold by Urban Outfitters. To many conscious buyers this comes as no surprise. Urban Outfitters have been called out time and time again for shameless copies of small independent artists work for a fraction of the price. This is made possible by outsourcing designs for mass manufacture. When you buy a work by me you will see my name or mark written by me on the bottom of every single vase NOT ‘made in Vietnam’. Each piece is thrown by me on my pottery wheel. I make unique items that are one of a kind and small batch editions for companies that believe good business comes by collaborating with artists. Many thanks for your continued support.
