In this project I am inspired by one of the first massproduced table ware: Blue Willow, which had its inspiration from the handpainted chinese porcelain, that was much too expensive for ordinary people. Even though the Blue Willow pattern has a Chinese look and story, it was actually created in England in 1780 by engraver Thomas Minton. Then, Minton sold the design to potter Thomas Turner who mass-produced the pattern on earthenware.
My aim is to go back to the handpainted and handmade, with traces of the process.
