What Jane Says
"I have always been a lover of blue and cream pottery. When I was a child we would often visit my elderly Auntie for afternoon tea and so were used to seeing the "Willow Pattern" on sandwich plates and teacups. The Willow Pattern featured an elaborate chinoiserie pattern that was popular towards the end of the 18th Century. Despite having an oriental style of design, pottery featuring the Willow Pattern originally came from Stoke On Trent in the UK, but a lot of pottery featuring the design also came from China via the East India Company.
Delftware from The Netherlands, which also features cream and blue designs, was in existence far earlier then its Stoke On Trent counterpart. Delftware often features flowers and birds and is famous for its quality and intricate designs. I am so pleased with the outcome of this design and I love the way the octagon motifs create the idea of tessellating decorated plates."
