Amnesty International, 100th Anniversary

Here's the challenge: design an item which is both celebratory, recognising 100 years of existence and endeavour, with the need to raise awareness of the strive to abolish the death penalty. Tricky.....

When we were commissioned by Amnesty International to design and make a Limited Edition tea cup and saucer - that was the challenge we faced. After lots of head scratching and cogitation, we came upon the idea that the thing that links both these things, and indeed what links all of us is humanity. The humanity of those who work to abolish the death penalty and fight for freedom for the oppressed, with the humanity that is the right of every person, regardless of their guilt or actions.

And so, as a metaphor for humanity we chose to use the platelet, one of the core components of blood, the life force which connects us all. So we set about creating a piece using platelets, and for good measure we added in the barbed wire which is so symbolic of Amnesty International's work.

Annie Bertram, trademark photo art of a unique kind. Her photographic vision is dreamy and emotional, her portrait shots highly original. Reduced to their very essence, they provide insights on the relationship of humans to the world of fiction and vice versa. Her subjects are staged to build new identities: daydreams, desires, fairy tales… yet also nightmares.
A sense of familiarity between people and scenery – a sort of merging, a synergy. Annie’s favourite backdrops are unique and often morbid locations: factories, dilapidated houses and mystic natural sceneries… places that breathe the air of the bizarre, the obsolete or of secrecy. She directs the eye to things that are often overlooked – thoughts, emotions, fate. This intention is amplified by the direct and narrative way the often female protagonists are instructed to look at the camera.

Annie Bertram is working very passionately with people for more than 15 years. She aims for more than just a beautifully photographed face. Annie is looking for the person behind the glamour, for the human being behind the persona. “The all-defining, intimate moment where the model lets me glimpse behind his or her façade is my biggest challenge.”

Here at The New English we are very proud to work with talented artists who are incredibly creative when it comes to combining ceramics and art.

The humble dot – unsung hero of the 20th and 21st centuries; the foundation of our televisions, the basis of our newsprint, the means by which the first printers brought our computer generated words and ideas to life. Indeed, the medium through which artists such as Lichtenstein shaped our thinking and understanding of image and expression. Benday is a homage to the dot; its beauty, simplicity and above all else, its importance in our lives.

He was born in 1980 and grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico an environment which is rich in Hispanic arts and culture. Growing up he was introduced to the likes of films such as Star Wars and the monsters within Michael Jackson’s Thriller video, these helped to spark his artistic imagination. In his teens, he turned to graffiti, an influence that can still be seen in his work to this day. Brandon believes that the visual language of art has the ability to communicate beyond the confines of spoken language, it is his belief that this quality is the essence of visual arts and is the medium’s greatest strength. There have been many uses of art throughout humanity such as a tool to inform civilizations, functioning as a powerful propaganda tool with great success. When he paints, he attempts to use his artwork as a vehicle for inspiring change. He tries to ensure that each piece he creates is something that he believes in and that is worth saying and contemplating. They can often be associated with many aspects of human experience, from life’s joys, sorrows and struggles, to the mysteries of our mortal existence. He uses his time whilst processing the painting to strive to be able to understand them better and in return, to use the meaning and understanding of each painting with the intention of making himself a better individual.

Caitlin’s artistry has stemmed from her passion of the natural world, which has inspired her since she first put pencil to paper as a child. Living in California between the cold Pacific Ocean and the redwood forests was where her love for the wilderness and nature. As she has grown Caitlin has combined her love of animals with her interest in both wildlife biology and mythology, to create artwork that speaks to the current biological mythos that constructs the barrier between what is considered Human and what is considered Animal. ‘I hope to remind those who view my artwork that we too are animals, embedded in this fragile world even as we poison it.’  Her work indicates to the boundaries that separate humans and animals, both physically and metaphysically. As well as the way in which these boundaries are warped by science, mythology and religion alike. ‘Like the gods of so many myths Humanity has warped the world into our own image.’

Camilla resides in Vancouver, BC, where she paints and draws comics, and more recently has been working with entertainment companies on feature films and videogames. She has distinguished herself through her ability to seamlessly weave comic art and manga with surrealist elements, wrapping it all together with an extensive emotional palette.

His painting style, examples of which grace all of his album covers, is marked by nightmarish landscapes and grotesque, distorted figures. He draws inspiration from his older brother's struggle with schizophrenia. He generally likes to use oils or pastels, although he ventures into other media, like acrylic and scratchboard. He created a 13-minute animated film about his work titled The Severed Stream. His work, which has fetched prices of more than $30,000,[4] has been shown throughout the United States and Canada. He has had solo exhibitions at Billy Shire Fine Arts,[5] The Erie Art Museum, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, The Steensland Museum, Coker Bell Gallery[6] and the Mesa Arts Center.

Christian Rothenhagen is a Berlin artist, that will bring us ‘back to the roots’ and delight us with a new medium of staying up to date: the drawing. We have long forgotten this mean, by which our forefathers wrote, archived and revisited history. Mr. Rothenhagen’s depiction of the streets of Berlin, but also the look through the eyes of this artist to visit the cities of San Francisco and Toronto. Images “frozen in time”. Like looking through a traveller’s personal snapshots; something so intimate, which is emphasized by the unusual angles Christian Rothenhagen chooses to admire and bring to life. His special eye enables him to pick corners of otherwise unstriking places and through his delicate line technique transform them into aesthetic wonder-spots. With this collection, Christian is opening up his personal journal and letting us get lost in his world.

One of the many talented artists we have worked with here at The New English is Daniel van Nes, he is a modern artist who uses centuries old techniques, such as copper and wood engraving to create his sculptures. He was born in 1972 in the Terneuzen, the Netherlands.

He is known for his installations which incorporate unique engraving, by using old fashioned methods he can transform them into modern materials and new visual concepts. By doing so he has developed a new technique called ‘Illuminated Engraving’, the result of this meticulously handcrafted work can only be seen using light.

The work he creates can be used to reflect on both social and technological developments within the modern day industrial world, in which concepts such as identity and reality often play a role. Arranging characters and elements in a ‘machine noir’ setting, he illuminates an undefined world that may be waiting for us in the future, or for some already exist in the present.

David Stein (born Henri Haddad, January 27, 1935, Alexandria, Egypt – October 1999, Bordeaux, France) was an artist who, until 1966, had been frequently sentenced for theft by the French courts before becoming an art forger and art dealer with 15 aliases. Stein often copied paintings in the style of the masters. For example, he studied Marc Chagall, Matisse, Braque, Paul Klee, Miró, Jean Cocteau and Rouault, in order to copy their colour scheme and inspirations. His clients were mainly attracted by his low prices. After Stein, had served his prison term in the United States, he was deported to France where he served another term. Prison authorities allowed him to make further paintings, although now using his own name. In 1969 a London gallery sold some of these paintings. After Stein was released, he returned to painting, this time selling his paintings under his own name to put a mask on his real activities.

David Stoupakis was born in Newton, Massachusetts, in 1974. He currently lives and works in New York. His work, inspired by fables, fairy tales and nostalgic allusions to the places and situations of his childhood, has always been focused on the evocation of dreamlike landscapes and psychologically complex characters often caught in the gloomy atmosphere of dramatic, apocalyptic scenarios. From the first works of the series God is Dead, The Hours and Murder of us, characterized by a more essential compositional structure and imbued by manifold references to the religious symbolism of Medieval Art, to the exquisitely intricate narrative of his other works, David’s artistic production, broadly influenced by the Renaissance Art, has recently evolved towards a more sophisticated synthesis of both content and form. David’s characters and their interactions with their own microcosm can instrumental to understand his creative process and his ability to turn certain memories and anxieties into well-rendered depictions of his interpretation of reality, whereas his palette is and remains an extension of his emotional and intellectual response to the world.

His career began in 1974 as one half of the performance art duo Reindeer Werk. In 1980 he changed to anti-conceptualist painting, part of a movement that eventually came to be known as Low Brow. Finding himself uncomfortably cornered into a genre that appeared to be becoming ever more Disneyfied, he has since branched into an area that appears to be something of a hybrid, standing between pro and contra conceptual camps. He prefers being a hinge to a flat plane.

Before venturing into the world of the finite arts, Elmer Presslee had made a sizeable fortune through a series of equestrian blooper tapes. Certain discredited physicians have said his artistic technique comes from high levels of potassium in his veins (from an 95% banana-based diet). His work is inspired by a mix of painful memories of fictional childhoods he’s remembered from years of watching late night low-budget movie broadcasts. Elmer’s state, federal and personal medical files are sealed due to several court orders. They will not be repeated here.

Harrods, London, The Knightsbridge Range

To be able to design and make an exclusive dinner service for what many regard as the world's premier department store, was manna from heaven. Based on an art deco theme, introduced by Harrods as the background to their wide collection of own brand luxury items, the range, known as Knightsbridge, incorporates what we described as 'knurlling' (not a proper word probably) in other words the raised texture which is usually applied to metallic objects to make them easier to turn.

The mechanical, engineered feel along with lots of straight lines and angles reflected our interpretation of the theme. Achieving it in ceramics was however a real challenge. Eventually we decided that there should be no colour on the pieces only precious metals and to add a point of interest we decided to defy convention and  incorporate both gold and platinum on the same pieces. To give us the textural quality we used a technique called 'raised paste' which enables a 3 dimensional relief to be incorporated onto the design through the use of layers of paste which is fired onto the item before gilding.

As a mark of the success in which the range was received, it was subsequently chosen as the 'crockery of choice' for the executive dining room.

For centuries, the tattoo has served to shock, inspire and to feed our imagination in equal measure. It is an artform, which has crossed every boundary of culture, sex, gender and geography and is today less marginalised than ever before. Inkhead reflects society’s changing relationship with the tattoo and presents a range of ceramics which encapsulate its detail, colour vibrancy and symbolism. Each piece features a delicate gold tooth, and each piece in the range is designed to be a focal point in its own right.  All are hand gilded and burnished in 22kt gold and are proudly made in Stoke on Trent.

The magnificent Inkhead range is designed by Florian Hutter for The New English and features an incredibly intense rose skull tattoo. The illustrations are applied using a multi-layer, multi screen printing process for extraordinary tonal depth, creating an image that is rich with detail and redolent with meaning.

Limited Edition Fine Bone China Art Plate Series: In Homage to the Last Great Carnivores of Eurasia, designed by British artist Jane Lee McCracken.

Inspired by her passion for childhood memoirs, fairy tales, travel, forests and animals and her continuing interest in war and loss, Jane makes intricate, multi-layered drawings with colour or black Biros, utilising her drawings to create multimedia objects and installations. Using photographs she has taken of films and documentaries, her dog, people and found objects surrounding her as inspiration, she builds complex layers of drawn images in Biro as if film stills projected over one another, resulting in monotone or colour abstract pieces with an ethereal, cinematic quality.

Taking weeks and months to create each drawing, her aim is to make pieces that juxtapose the beauty and brutal reality of life thus creating memorials to lives lived, both human and animal and ways of life lost. Her work provokes consideration of loss whether through war or disaster, coaxing empathy for the emotional or physical scars experienced by humans, animals or the environment. Her ‘fairytale-esque’ drawings transport the viewer to far-away places and exigent times just as tales of old have transported innumerable generations.

All plates are made of Fine Bone China in Stoke on Trent, England.

Limited edition of 200 each.

These pieces are made to order. The lead time for these items may be up to 2 weeks.

He claims to be influenced by several known artists like Rene Magritte, Paul Delvaux, Gustav Klimt, Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dalí and William Bougereau.[2] Jon states that he is inspired by dreams, daily occurrences, direct experiences, and the stories of close friends.

Duality is the major theme of Kristen Ferrell’s work, the conflicting imagery of beauty vs. grotesque, innocence and rage, ID vs. superego. Being raised in a quiet, God-fearing Kansas home, and being plagued with constant violent rebellious tendencies forced her to express internal conflicts through artistic outlets. Influenced by artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Goya, and Hieronymus Bosch, she voices her confusion with human behavior through classical symbolism, but in modern terms. Using the classical meaning behind the objects and animals represented in her work, she relays her reactions and observations to subjects such as self-betrayal, guilt, who we are vs. who we wish to be, the heartbreak that presents itself when dealing with others, and the ways we fail ourselves for the sake of the people we chose to care about. Kristen currently resides in Southern California with her husband, 18 year old son, 3 silly cats and 3 darling Chiweenies (it's a kind of dog).  In addition to her artwork and gallery shows, she is the sole owner and operator of Kristen Ferrell Clothing & Accessories- a clothing line based on her artwork and illustrations.  If it weren't for the warm and loving support of coffee, she would not be able to balance the stresses of being a mom, gallery deadlines, and running a clothing line.

Born in 1953 in Washington and one of the many schools he attended was the San Francisco Academy of Art. In 1977, he decided to focus on commercial art relating to the music industry. After returning to California he started a small studio on the beach city of Encinitas. One of the local bands that KRK did art for was Manifest Destiny. The debut album of this political hard-core band was done at this studio. The band hung at the studio and became friends with the artist. The lead singer, Daryl Hall, referred to Keyth as KRK in a sort of ribbing way, and the name adhered. This name started to show up on work dating around 1982.

KRK Ryden's art is a record of mongrel pop culture. His aesthetic is informed by comic books, punk rock, and cartoons, while his world view is strictly DEVO. KRK's work embraces everyday absurdity and a cartoony view of reality. His paintings are colourful and visually appealing reflections on discarded icons, and his graphics are well-realized snapshots of cartoon life. For over thirty years KRK has been creating illustrations and paintings for underground bands, publishers, and institutions.

This range has been designed for The New English by Maxim, the energetic powerhouse and lead singer with the internationally famous band 'The Prodigy'. Based on imagery drawn from his wonderful paintings (which are now gaining widespread international recognition) the range features an array of unusual creatures. Each distinctive, each imbued with its own characteristics but all sharing the species' unique combination of delicacy and strength.

Decorated with complex, multi-layer, screen printed, hand applied lithographs. Equally at home on a table, a wall, or display cabinet, these specimens are as much a piece of art as they are functional objects.

London Transport Museum, 150 years of The London Underground

We have been working on a wonderful range of 'luxury' products for The London Transport Museum in order to celebrate the 150th anniversary of The London Underground. This amazing commission enabled Paul Bishop to lose himself in London Underground's famous archive material in order to develop the range.

Collectively entitled 'Blueprint' these pieces draw heavily on both the architectural plans and the artistic heritage of the Underground and attempt to put a contemporary slant on the commemorative. 

With many of the plans and documents in the archives showing their signs of age, with some held together by Sellotape and many with the stains and marks of 150 years of history, Paul decided to use these marks as a way of encapsulating history - so expect to find tea stains, tears, sticky tape and lots more embedded into the design. We produced the range using primarily cobalt blue and gold.

Lori Field crafts exquisite and wondrous worlds, dreamy yet unsettling, floating somewhere between Alice’s looking glass and the Brothers Grimm’s darkest forest.’ (Barry Blinderman, Director of University Galleries of Illinois State University) Her mixed media drawings, paintings and sculptures straddle the border between reality and dream, past life and present. They evoke subliminal, mysterious worlds – planets of her own creation, demimondes peopled with anthropomorphic ‘angels with attitude’, accompanied by mutants, exhibitionists, seducers, chimeras and other intimate strangers. She believes that her paintings offer a chance to submit to an obsession with obsessiveness, and the chance to explore and visualise the concept of the ‘other’. Thus, making the work deliberately intimate, containing fetishistic figures that are emotionally confrontational and exaggerated in their ‘otherness.’ They offer the ability to provide a means for emotive personification, characterizing or exhibiting human motives and foibles, with external traits suggesting internal ones, through the use of the primitive visual myths of their secret lives and animalistic figures. These shape-shifting archetypes - a cast of reoccurring characters - create intuitive narratives that explore themes of loss, rebirth, identity, denial, alienation, loneliness......and vulnerability.  Set in their evolving mythological context her ‘creatures’ seduce, and their peculiar environments are redolent of a flawed, human fragility. Drawing and embroidering tattoos on the bodies, as metaphor for memory, suggests an assimilation of culturally inscribed messages.

Marmite Sue is the pen name of Porcelain doll artist and Illustrator, Eli Effenberger/Satoh. The concept of a doll has long been her biggest inspiration and guiding line in all the many mediums of her creation. From her fashion and wearable art, to both Analogue and Digital paintings. Then most recently, she has been focusing on creating hand-crafted articulately jointed Art- Dolls.

I have my roots in traditional art and animation and started to use the computer
as an artistic tool in 2000 while I was working for film/ advertising and design
agencies as an illustrator and animator. The endless opportunities of working
digitally fascinated me from the start and I began to improve my technical skills
in painting my pencil drawn illustrations digitally step by step. My artwork is based on pencil and ink illustrations which still is the most creative part of the time- consuming process of developing a digital painting. I am using a cintiq/ wacom as a canvas where the pen is my paintbrush having numerous layers of different shades. It is very comparable with working on a traditional
painted piece.

Born in Sydney Australia, Nanami Cowdroy has close bonds to her mixed Japanese-European heritage. Growing up with such contrasting cultures and surroundings has greatly influenced her style of art and the way she expresses her creativity.

By intertwining complex characters and highly detailed objects, her pieces reflect a juxtaposition between foreign and familiar entities and environments. Her imagination is illustrated through works which are both elaborate and exotic. She is drawn to subjects, which may on the surface seem delicate or fragile, but are given strength and depth through her pen and ink techniques, intricate hand illustrative style and mixed media compositions.

Her signature detailed style reflects a refined monochrome palette with her name ‘Nanami’ (meaning ‘Seven Seas’ in Japanese) stamped in red. Fluid line-work and watery creatures are some of her favourite subjects and distinctive forms which feature in her artworks.

National Gallery, London

Rembrandt Commission - Self Portrait at The Age of 63 (detail) 1669

Our friends at the National Gallery commissioned us to create a limited edition run of 100 plates based on one of Rembrandt's most well known masterpieces, Self Portrait at The Age of 63 (detail) 1669. What an amazing gig that was - to be able to work with such an amazing image, and to be entrusted to translate it into the plates by The National Gallery was both an incredible honour and a huge responsibility, posing as it did some major technical issues in both colour matching and faithfulness, and also just getting the plates to fire properly. Despite several major setbacks, we managed to pull it off.

P&O Britannia - artwork for the oriental restaurant

We were commissioned by P&O to create 4 unique multi-plate installations for the amazing oriental restaurant on board P&O Britannia, the largest cruise ship built exclusively for Britain which made its maiden cruise in July 2015.

The ship itself is a masterpiece of design and engineering; being sophisticated, stylish and super luxurious steering way clear of the usual the over the top 'blinginess' and 'texan oil billionaire' style that features so heavily on many cruise ships.

Paul Bishop describes is thus: "In an attempt to reflect the grace and elegance of the ship and to convey a sense of movement I focussed on an oriental fan as the central motif, being struck by the graphic opportunities represented by the fan form and used these to create the installations.

The first pair of installations, each of which measures approximately 2.0m x 1.2m uses the fan as the basis of a super sized butterfly, each in turn being made from multiple smaller butterflies.  The second pair again use the fan, but this time I have created two large cloud trees - the exquisite painstakingly manicured horticultural works of art that grace many oriental gardens."

She started out tattooing out of Auckland, New Zealand in 2000, she now lives in New York City and works at Kinds Avenue Tattoo. She focuses on a traditional American style with a more decorative approach. Oher than tattooing, Rose paints and has been involved in many group exhibitions over the years. One such exhibition was Mad Potters, where she designed a set of products for The New English displays.

He was born in Venice in 1957 and started his exhibition career in 1993 when he published his first monograph titled ‘portrayed from Saturn: 1989-1992.’ Since then he has exhibited his work in Italy, Europe and the US (New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco). His artwork is characterized by a personal, formal interpretation of European sacred art and technical skill, that portrays one of the great masters of our pictorial tradition. Figurative rituals, tableaux vivants, neo-Gothic altar pieces are the skilful creations with which Butto extracts the fascinating mysteries of an “obscure, dark religion. This concept is brilliantly illustrated by the juxtaposition between the body’s innate sensuality and its deeper spirituality. Through illustrating the conflict between eroticism and pain, transgression and rapture, Buttò’s valuable paintings on wood examine in depth the strict and conflicting vision of Western religious iconography by comparisons with the body. The body is, on one side exhibited like an object of cult, while simultaneously being denied its value of nascent erotic beauty. It’s a fascinating tension that above all exalts the human figure, to the centre of the exhibition. The human figure, which in Buttò’s poem, is constantly represented as sacred, is depicted in its physical and psychological decadence. It is sometimes illustrated by instruments and/or medical tools, that represent human pain on one hand while simultaneously highlighting the will to defeat death in a Utopian way. It also manages to vividly depicts the inescapable condition of physical decline, more accurately than ever. This way, a beautiful girl’s parade consecrate from a golden halo, as the Byzantine icons, shine from a lively and sensual physicalness, but are hidden from a mysterious demoniac fascination, as if they were wedded in purity to destruction and decay.

He was born in the USA in 1969 and he studied at Montserrat College of Art. His work represents themes associated with the historic fusion of religious dogma and scientific enlightenment of the Renaissance. His work is meant to be contemplative; and the viewer is encouraged to meditate on its hidden subtext – narratives about the search for the divine soul through anatomical dissection. Holloway mainly approaches his work emotionally but controls the formal presentation through analytical methods as was done by the great masters of the past. He chose to present his final images o anatomy as traditional icons to convey the sacred nature of the human body. His work is about honouring the beauty and complexity of the human form even after death.

They're cute, friendly, highly collectable, and not made from plastic! Great as a gift, an ornament, or a happy little friend for the long winter nights ahead.

Skeleton Heart is the collaborative pseudonym for artists Anthony and Lisa Parker.

Lisa was born in the south of England in Plaistow, East London in 1969 and Anthony was born in the north west of England in Morecambe, Lancashire in 1976.

Anthony and Lisa had previously worked together on film and television projects in the field of special effects, creatures and prosthetics over a period of many years and found that they shared mutual interests and inspirations in many things from artists and animation to Victoriana and antiques.  They eventually became a couple and in 2009, made the decision to put their efforts into their own artwork and combine their creativity and skills, calling themselves Skeleton Heart.

This gave them a renewed sense of purpose with their personal artworks after becoming disheartened by the creative compromises that can come with working in the film industry.  They feed off each others ideas and creativity, merging their individual styles and influences.  The result are pieces that have a cartoony look with a distinctly emotive and darker side.  Or 'cute but creepy' as they have been referred to by many.

Tectonic Plates

Reviving the lost art of collecting and displaying plates.

The tradition of displaying plates goes back a long way, stretching back over 700 years to around the 1300's when the early trade routes with China (that had developed the process of making, firing and glazing porcelain almost 700 years before) opened up and porcelain objects became prized possessions for the European nobility of the time.

The art of collecting and displaying plates seems to have more or less skipped a generation (and that's where we come in).

We aim to re-engage people with plates and ceramics in a way that encourages people to see them as much more than simply functional objects - we want to re-introduce the notion that art and functionality live side by side. This is our aim, and Tectonic Plates are tools in the fight for a place in the contemporary consciousness.

We make each of these plates using the finest bone china, here in Stoke on Trent, the once all powerful epicentre of the global ceramics industry, which has been decimated over the last decade by a tsunami of factory closures and job losses, but is now fighting back.

We're doing our bit to spearhead a renaissance of the industry here in the UK and Tectonic Plates is one of our most exciting projects.

Tectonic Plates features our range of almost 300 plates, representing the creative endeavours of our new friends - almost 100 artists, designers, architects, illustrators, and general creative clever clogs. We hope you will like them.

Their inspiration stems from the melding of observational reality and autobiography with myth and storytelling.  Past and present merge as they encounter culture through the re-use of discarded object and ephemera, favouring the physical experience of the work as paramount, theirs is a visual language built upon the idea of transformation/transmutation of the material bones, creating a whole from previously disparate elements where meanings, connotations and associations are made by the actual presence of the work.
