Fine English bone china coupe plate designed by Jane, featuring her intricate black Biro drawing Mummy Bear and Baby Bear. This is the first design of her brown bears diptych and one of eight designs from her iconic print and china series In Homage to the Last Great Carnivores of Eurasia. It highlights threatened and endangered carnivores across the Eurasian continent.
A Russian brown bear treads across this beautiful china plate with a rich tapestry of symbolism woven through his fur, including an interpretation of artist Anselm Kiefer’s attic. An old soviet war poster was used as inspiration to illustrate the harsh Russian winters faced by female bears and their cubs, a time when hibernating brown bears are most at risk from mankind. Jane's meticulous drawings take several months to research and make.
A unique statement piece to display or as part of an elegant fine dining set, each plate design is a limited edition of 200. This exquisite collection is beautifully hand made to order in Stoke-on-Trent by prestigious ceramic designers and manufacturers The New English.
