A collection of wonderfully purposeful ceramics - each with a meaningful storyHolly Bullock
When artist and designer Sophie Wilson transplanted her life to The Fens in Lincolnshire, moving from her long-time home of London, she unwittingly stepped into a new era of inspiration. Setting up home in a hauntingly beautiful dilapidated manor house, dating back to 1551, she began producing a collection of wonderfully purposeful ceramics – each with a meaningful story.
@1690works was the result – a stunningly detailed range of terracotta dishes, handmade to order by founder Wilson at her Fenland kitchen table. Simple in form, it’s the detailed illustrations painted onto Wilson’s creations that have become her specialty. Incorporating enchanting figures, botanical patterns and bewitching text, every dish tells a unique story. Available via @cutterbrooksshop, each piece is as beautifully decorative as it is deeply thought-provoking. HB
