Deconstructed Willow Pattern Teacup
UK delivery £3.50 - Free delivery on orders over £40!
Unique landscapes made using a mixture of familiar and beautiful sets of the classic Willow Pattern.
The famous blue and white Willow Pattern was an 18th century English interpretation of fashionable hand painted ware from China. The legend of the Willow pattern evolved as an early marketing ploy by Minton.
Our very limited stocks of three versions of Willow pattern (including Spode and English Ironstone) have been pulled apart and reconstructed to form surreal landscapes that encourage you look again at the quality of the transfer.
The unlikely story of their survival, and creation through Stokes Croft China and ceramicist Bev Milward, make this body of work a highly desirable piece of ceramic history.
Twice fired to 1080 degrees, this brings out the richness blue of cobalt. Each piece is unique, hand decorated and bears Bev's maker's mark, a key.
The Deconstructed Willow Pattern line comes in a variety of china ware, which can be found in our shop in Bristol.
The Designer: Bev Milward
Bev Milward is an established maker working in porcelain. She is interested in the longevity and sentimentality of ceramics, how they infiltrate our lives and can be used as a tool for communication long after leaving the maker.
Her distinctive landscape collaged pieces have a strong narrative in common with her porcelain work. Her makers mark is a key which is featured on the front of the current British Studio pottery dictionary.
