If your idea of a fine piece of china contains florals and pretty scenes, then this post may not be for you. Phoebe Richardson is a London based Graphic designer who strives to put a little something different on your plate.
Inspired by 16th century medical engravings and bones from the Natural History Museum in London, Richardson has created the aptly named “Bone China” collection. The name is not the only little sneak of humour in the collection which, like an anatomy class, allows you to construct and deconstruct the human skeletal structure….. who said Interior design was not educational…!!
The plates, which are called “The Super Model” are designed by Phoebe and produced by The New English. They are also on display at the home of their original inspiration, the Natural History Museum!
Now if an espresso is more your thing then how about the skeleton stack coffee cups
And for those who would love to continue the skeletal theme… you can go all out with the “Gingerdead Men” cookie cutter and embosser….. perfect for halloween, to dunk into your skeleton cups….
Let me know what you think….. in the mean time on with the colourful journey………
