The Frondescence collection concentrates on the nostalgia of storytelling and emulating memories of my grandmother’s household.

Sitting having a cup of tea out of my Grandmothers special ceramic cup collections or picking fruit and vegetables from her garden, these were vivid childhood memories. These memories have inspired hand-painted illustrations and digital designs. The collection includes garden florals, potting shed geometrics and ceramic household treasures, all linking to places explored as a child. Uniting these themes has created a juxtaposition of the indoors and outdoors in an adventurous colour palette inspired by ceramics within museums and local gardens. Hand made was of great importance within this collection concentrating on hand painting and printing showing depth and layering. This presents contrasting prints for the use of homeware, accessories and fashion.
