Set to be released next summer, Benjamin Read and Chris Wildgoose’s Porcelain: Ivory Tower will pick up the story of Lady 10 years after the events of Bone China and will see Lady become a Mother. But if you can’t wait until next year to see what’s in store, you can check out a fantastic 12 page preview which you can find here.
