Amnestea Sculpture Update

Back in November, Perfect Setting launched its Great British AmnesTea to raise money for The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice. Customers were encouraged to bring in an old teapot and replace it with a Steelite one for just £10.

Instead, we set about designing a sculpture that symbolised Stoke-on-Trent with the hope to locate it somewhere in the city.
