Featherspray was officially launched at the British Craft Trade Fair at the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, UK on Sunday, 6th April 2014. A few trial pieces were made in 2012 and sold through the studio shop at St. Lawrence. Featherspray and Ballon were the first two designs to be produced at the relocated studio at Arreton Barns, Isle of Wight.
Aurora was the very first and only colourway at launch. However, all the other colourways followed quickly afterward.
