Spooky Ceramics From Fornasetti and The New English

Today I was out and about on Queen St. E. and popped into Studio Pazo to admire the fabulous collection of Fornasetti plates they had in their window. Everytime I see these plates I think of  Covet Garden's issue ten with Sandra Dionisi and the plates she has on display in her living room. Of course Sandra brought hers back from Italy but it's good to know that such fabulous pieces are also available at home.

And, just when I thought I'd had my fill of eye candy I was stopped cold by not one but two other incredible tableware collections. Both are by The New English, an exciting ceramics company who gives a fresh innovative twist to the standard china patterns that Britain is known for. First, let's look at Pheobe Richardson's SUPERMODEL plates (pictured above).

The second series is Lisa Turner's Anatomica collection (pictured above). Each piece is different and beautifully illustrated. And okay, these designs might not be for every one but that is what makes them even more special to me.
