PLATE ESCAPE

 

Doodles in the cafe and scribbles at breakfast are mostly where the designs begin. Later in the studio, the ideas are refined and rendered in pen and ink with a traditional dip nib pen. The lively character of the drawing is enhanced by the technique, and inspiration lends its’ hand via Surrealism, comedy and food-related literature.

 

Working with a digital ceramics specialist the illustrations are printed onto a transfer sheet using a vibrant colour set. They are then applied by hand onto fine bone china plates sourced from Stoke-on-Trent, and fired in a kiln just outside Rye in Sussex.

 

The plates aim to add an unexpected and entertaining element to eating, connecting a sense of play with a love of food.
