Thunderbirds control panel-inspired mugs from Gail Myerscough!

Now available in our online store is a new collection of four mugs designed by celebrated surface pattern designer and illustrator (and Anderson fan) Gail Myerscough! Gail has designed an exclusive limited-edition set of mugs and coasters with four designs inspired by the control panels seen in shows like Thunderbirds. The bone china 350 ml mugs are hand finished at James Dean Pottery in Kent, and the Gail Myerscough logo sits alongside the Anderson Entertainment logo on the back stamp of the mugs.

Gail says: “I take my inspiration from mid-century design and modernist architecture and I grew up watching Gerry Anderson shows, so bringing all these interests together in these designs has been a real pleasure for me. Anderson Entertainment has been a delight to work with and I’m looking forward to more collaborations in the near future.”

The mug designs are inspired by the layout of control consoles seen in such Anderson shows as Thunderbirds.


The mugs, which can be pre-ordered now as a set of four, will be sold exclusively through the Gerry Anderson Store for shipping from the beginning of April. Matching coasters will also be arriving in the next few weeks!

Gail Myerscough is a freelance surface pattern designer & illustrator based in Manchester, in the UK, and is available for commissions and collaborations through her website
