This may be a long post as there is a lot to show you from the new collection. Thank you for being patient while I finalised details…I do all of this on my own with no helpers etc, so it is quite a lot of work and I appreciate your patience. So, here is the new range…well most of it…some is yet to be photographed, but these quick shots give you an idea.
This bowl above is a big one..a mixing bowl, salad bowl and something I have been wanting to do for a while. The design has been in my sketch book for ages…and now it’s real.
It’s quite deep and I use it for mixing up muffins etc or to serve out onto the table with.
The wreath was hand shaped. I love that the top is not perfectly flat. I didn’t want it to look like something from Target…that mass produced look has never appealed to me.
Next are the ‘pop’ bowls. You can see it here with the Embroidered series bowl underneath. It is this series, but in reverse! The texture comes out of the bowl and mimics the vintage piece of linen it was made from. Every piece in this collection works with all of the other Marley & Lockyer pieces. You should be able to build up your collection with out having to start from scratch.
I have also reversed the Fraser pattern from last range, so this one looks like the cable knit is coming out of the plate/bowl…like the real fishermans jumper it was made from.
Over the holidays, I did lot’s of sketching and designing this range and one of my Peony drawings became one of the designs. Here is a peek…from drawing…
Another one is this little Crab Apple branch. First a sketch, then carving and into the ceramic. I will show you this design soon as it is one of those yet to be photographed.
I am really loving these Nordic platters. They are flat, oval and have a lip around the edge and hold a roast dinner well…the wreath on them is picked up in the large bowls too.
This was a last minute decision to add this to the collection… love the journey…it is the next one from my Start The Journey plates with the little hot air balloon and cloud (remember those?). Continuing the wreath theme.
The backs/undersides of them have the Nordic pattern too.
I also made these…translated it means “love conquers all” and I couldn’t agree more!…these are a limited design
There are also these little bowls with the French Embroidery pattern underneath and a little wreath…all hand drawn, so no two are exact…I like that.
and of course my fave…the Tihan plates. They are the perfect dinner plate size if you are health conscious or watching your portion sizes (that’s the Personal Trainer side of me right there!)…or a cute side plate…or serving plate. These ones were released this week…and sold out in minutes.
I also have a Divine Wing II range…which you can see a hint of here. I will show you those soon too.
The collection is called ‘home’. I thought about this for weeks and had all sorts of names, but kept coming back to this. I wanted it to be simple…and I love home, so it was the perfect fit. As soon as I wrote this on some brown paper…I knew it was right…and this will be the logo too.
So, what do you think so far? I would love to here, and maybe you could tell me what you love about home.
