If you’ve ever seen Majolica pottery, it’s one of those things that once you become aware of it, you’ll see it everywhere when you are antiquing or at flea markets. The fun shapes and jewel-tone colors make Majolica extremely satisfying to collect. Popular retailers like One Kings Lane are inspired by the hue and shapes to this day.
The bold trend of lettuce-shaped ceramics was inspired by Sceaux ware from 1750’s France. Tin-glazed earthenware was carefully shaped and painted, often depicting natural fruits and flowers.
This design, like all of our prints, began as gouache paintings. Once we were happy with the painting, we laid them out digitally in this robust design, before sending them to our manufacturing partners to be hand silk-screened onto organic cotton.
