Rococo Chocolates has a tradition of collaborations with designers – Mark Prizeman, Tom Dixon, Andre Dubrueil, Emma Paolozzi and many others have shown their work here. Rosamund Coady is the latest artist to be commissioned by Rococo to make a small group of ceramic dishes for the new store in Earlham St.
Rosamund Coady is a London based maker. After a recent trip to Andalucia she started working on a group of plates to evoke the colours, the ceramic tiles and the Moorish designs in Granada. Her ceramics are made using a ranging of techniques – the clay is decorated freely using brushes, print and wax resist and fired to stoneware using tin glaze and other oxide rich glazes.
All the pieces are hand formed and functional – so they can go in the dish washer, but they do not appreciate harsh cleaners!

Rosamund Coady is one of five children and grew up in South London in a creative and very social family where most of time was spent cooking and organising parties. She went to Camberwell Art School at the same time as her sister Chantal, and when Chantal started Rococo Chocolates, Rosamund continued to make ceramics and to teach art. At home she is still surrounded by creatives – graphic art, architecture, bespoke lollies and clay work have all been made on the kitchen table by different members of the family.
