Sketching in the cafe and doodles at breakfast are mostly where the illustrations begin. Later refined in the studio, the ideas are then rendered in pen and ink with a traditional dip nib pen. Colour comes next in a wash, a blend, or a dab using fine inks.




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.
