The ‘Botanique’ Collection

A collection of etched pewter chargers, plates, bowls and jewellery.

I produced this range as a submission for the Pewter Live 2012 design competition, an annual competition held by The Worshipful Company of Pewterers in London. The competition brief was to produce a souvenir for a public attraction and market it. I chose Kew Gardens as my subject and made a series of pen and ink drawings on my visits there. My intention was to create images that evoke the wonderful sensory experience I always have when I visit Kew, be it in the glasshouses or gardens themselves.

The chargers, plates and bowl are limited editions of 10 and 20, all hand made, the packaging is a bespoke box with an etched pewter decal on the box cover matching the plate/charger design, included in the box is a signed limited edition print of the plate/charger design.

My submission for the competition won the Open Entry (£100-£250 Retail Category), Best proof of sales and The Alexander and Patricia Neish Award.
