We all like friends that are handy in the kitchen, and these ones are that and then some! Pepe and Friends, Created by Ceramic designer Camila Prada of Vinila Designs, is a wonderful family of cute ceramic creatures including, "Rif and Raf" Salt and Pepper shakers, "Big Daddy" Cookie Jar and "Pablo" the honey pot, whom we couldn't resist and had to buy one which is now proudly sitting on our kitchen table alongside our plastic tomato. Camila, a Canadian artist now based in Stoke-On-Trent is inspired by traveling to different cities and when designing new characters has a test called The Smile Test - if it makes you smile, then it's going in the right direction. Well Camila, I'm smiling, in fact I'm grinning from ear to ear.
