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.
