Mother’s Day Plate Illustrations

Aren’t these plates gorgeous?  They’re actually water colour illustrations painted by textile/ceramic designer and illustrator Lucy King for last months issue of Real Living Magazine, where they did a feature on baking for Mothers Day.  Lucy’s blog is called The Bowerbird,  and prior to setting up her own business in 2000, she worked in England for Wedgwood as a tableware pattern designer.  Lucy also has an online shop where she sells melamine plates and cards with her  illustrations on them.  I fell in love with these water colours such a clever idea and so beautifully illustrated by Lucy.  Pop over to her blog and have a browse I promise you’ll be as inspired as I was.  Ohh and I just noticed the July issue of Real Living Magazine has just come out.

    Thanks Catherine! I'm so glad you like the illustrations – they were really fun to paint. Shame I didn't get to sample any of the delicious cakes they were photographed with!! Lucy x
