Mediterranean Ceramics proudly announces that it will be one of the brands showcasing its work at the Chelsea Flower Show in London.
For the fourth consecutive year and between the 19th and the 23rd May, Mediterranean Ceramics will be displaying its work at the Chelsea Flower Show. This world-renowned event, which is organised by the Royal Horticultural Society, takes place in central London on a yearly basis and it is widely considered to be the gardening event of the year.
Having opened its doors in 2010, Mediterranean Ceramics has since become one of the island’s leading artisan brands – renowned for its exclusive, hand-made ceramics and its work in volcanic stone. The company is particularly well known for its outdoor-living collection, which includes chess and backgammon volcanic table tops and volcanic top counters with integrated barbecues. These pieces are all adorned with gorgeous designs which will help embrace the floral feel of the Chelsea Flower Show.
“It is a real honour for us to be asked to exhibit at such a prestigious event for the fourth time in a row,” say David and Brian Grima, who had established the Mediterranean Ceramics brand five years ago. “We could never have foreseen this when we started working and managing manufacturing in earthenware, 20 years ago.”
The Chelsea Flower Show was first held in 1905, when the Royal Horticultural Society decided to collaborate with the Chelsea Hospital. Since then, the show has been held at many different venues and has become a staple in the London social calendar. In fact, it was only ever cancelled during the Second World War and was then revived in 1947.
“Our items, with their colourful designs, fit in perfectly at the show,” David Grima explains. “But, more importantly, we believe that their colours and the strong materials used to create our bespoke items really reflect our country’s easy-going yet sturdy character. We will be incredibly proud to be flying, yet again, the Maltese flag in Chelsea.”
All of Mediterranean Ceramics’ products are hand-made, including their volcanic stone tabletops which are individually created and crafted by specialist artisans who customise each design and shape. These are then fired in kilns to become heat-, frost- and water-proof, as well as resistant to salt, atmospheric agents, spills, impacts and scratching.
