This group of works is a playful exploration and

re-working of the traditional Willow Pattern. The most well know and reproduced pattern in ceramic history, the Willow pattern has inspired many contemporary makers to re-interpret its meaning and morifs. In these pieces Steph has played with the scale of individual Willow motifs, painting them onto slabs of porcelain paperclay, which she then moulds into plates.
