Bizarre

Here is a little coffee set with a really weird design, that i can only assume is a stylized lily pad and lotus flower. It is easy to see how Clarice Cliff and Susie Cooper had so much influence over ceramic design of the early 20th century and how Staffordshire potteries where desperate not to miss the boat on their brightly coloured, simple designs. It's weird, but i love it. You might be able to make out that the mould shapes for the set are the same as that used for my 1920s Egyptian deco coffee set which can be found elsewhere on my blog.

About Me

My photo
Sometimes, life doesn't turn out the way you expected. And sometimes, it is exactly as it was 'meant' to be. But whilst i'm not a believer in fate or fatalism, I do believe that life is a both a learning experience and an obstacle course to be climbed and clambered over in the most creative way possible! In doing so, you'll get to where you should be even if it's not where you'd imagined.
