ILLUSTRATED & HANDMADE GOODS
Handmade porcelain brooches and pendants
The process: I made the original illustrations on paper, using water colour and India ink. These were then scanned, printed on ceramic transfers by a specialist printer and baked into the porcelain glaze in a professional kiln, to ensure durability. The front is glazed, the back is unglazed. Safety pins (brooch), and bails (pendants) were attached using a skin friendly glue.
Handmade brooches and pendants differ slightly, making every piece unique. However, the quality is always the same. Size is approx. 31 x 37 mm. Your brooch or pendant will be safely giftwrapped in a kraft box, ready to be given as a gift or used for safekeeping.
Handmade porcelain ring dishes
A collaboration with Annett Fisher from Mote. Annett made the dishes and I provided the illustrations. The process: I made the original illustrations on paper, using water colour and/or India ink. These were then scanned, printed on ceramic transfers by a specialist printer and baked into the porcelain glaze in a professional kiln, to ensure durability. The front of the dish is glazed, the back is unglazed. An ‘MB’ mark is hand-stamped into the back.
Handmade dishes differ slightly, making every piece unique. Sizes approx. 80 x 80 mm and 60x80 mm. Your dish will be safely giftwrapped in a square kraft box, ready to be given as a gift or used for safekeeping.
