You can’t really go wrong with this timeless yet endlessly fresh colour combination. Any kind of food looks good on blue and white.
I was looking at a few examples today as I recently inherited some Wedgewood willow pattern tableware. Given the brief of this blog I’ve only selected 2 contemporary examples from the very long list possible:
I’m a big fan of Flux , already featured in an earlier post, as I love the ongoing enthusiasm of contemporary design building on traditional skills. We have such a rich heritage in this country which not always valued and developed as it should be.
Louise Wilkinson does cute woodland- type scenes, partly inspired by willow pattern (the flying birds give it away) .
Thanks to the companies for the images from their websites.
I was going to slip in some designs from Richard Ginori but this post would get much longer than the brief. I’m delighted that Kering (formerly PPR), has apparently stepped in to save this illustrious Italian brand. Other famous ceramic companies including Spode and Rosenthal, survive in some form or another. We just don’t want to lose the skills or the knowledge.
