The Perfect Christmas Gift: Porcine Porcelain!

I must say it's been a little while now since I've been this excited to write about a new found gem - I'm practically bursting to share this one with you... 

One word, well actually it's three little words stuck together... Jimbobart - illustrated bone china, so intricate and nostalgic it will melt your heart! James Ward, the talented genius behind the charming ceramics produces the works of art from his studio on Columbia Road in East London. James has perfected the art of storytelling beautifully and creates unique one-off pieces with meaning. Working with pen and ink, the focus of his work is centred around nature and expressive animals, predominantly bears!

I got in contact with James the designer a few weeks ago and he very kindly gifted us Mice a festive side plate dubbed The Chistmas Pig. When it arrived in the post I let out a little Carrie Bradshaw scream of delight as I pulled back the tissue paper to reveal this charismatic little piggy staring back at me all dressed up in a festive jumper and paper crown...

Isn't he just the most perfect Christmas present ever? What could be better than pigging out on a plateful of mince pies or a doorstep turkey sandwich served on a Christmas pig plate?!

Putting side plates to one side (!), Jimbobart sells a whole lot more, including coffee cup sets, serving platers, limited edition prints and original artwork. He is by no means a one trick pony, far from it...

Check at the full range here or head down to the Jimbobart store on Columbia Road above Marcos and Trump, no. 146 - open Sundays 10am - 4pm.
