FINE ENGLISH BONE CHINA MUG
HEIGHT 9.5 X DIAMETER 8.5 CM
One of a set of six finest English china mugs featuring Jane's original Biro drawings.
Inspired by Ivan Shishkin’s painting Morning in a Pine Forest, Jane created an ethereal forest setting for the The Orphans playground. Eerie creatures are formed from the patterns in the pine branches and foliage. This evokes the precarious world in which the cubs inhabit without their mother’s protection.
On the back of this enchanting mug, bear cubs play on a tree branch that also has layered images of Wojtek the soldier bear, including his regimental badge. The tree branch image is repeated inside where it becomes a slide for cubs, their mischievous play revealed as the contents of the mug are drunk!
Design and original Biro drawing by Jane Lee McCracken
