– Jessie Tait – Another Sad Loss to Design

Another of my other huge inspirational design figures has also died recently. Jessie Tait died aged 81 on 14th January.  She was well known as the chief designer for Midwinter, I have fond memories of growing up with her ceramics as part of my grandmothers kitchenware and later I started to collect some of her pieces. Below is a photo of some of her work from a book, alas not owned by me. As you can see her designs remain very contemporary and modern. I just love the simplicity of the design. Her obituary can be read here in the Guardian.
