Dartington Crystal is the latest British name to join the licensee list with designer Julie Dodsworth. Her original floral designs have inspired Dartington to embark on developing a collection of decorated glass to be launched later in 2013.
What started as an attempt to replicate traditional canal boat art for her own narrow boat, has led to Julie's designs becoming adopted by several leading gift and homeware brands to create successful ranges.
Dartingon's Managing Director, Neil Hughes, said: "When Julie's fresh and engaging style came to our attention, its potential was immediately obvious to us. As well as the commercial appeal of her work, she has developed a growing network of customers and other licensed suppliers that we can work through."
Having recently visited the Devon factory of Dartington, Julie commented: "I was thrilled that Dartington wanted to work with me and bring glassware to the collection. The Dartington team and their approach are a perfect match for me. We are now looking forward to a great partnership together."
