This dumpy sugar bowl features an illustration of a wolf pouring a cup of tea for a hare, while a hedgehog tucking into a cupcake! What a lovely tea party they are having!

Let me tell you a little more about how I make it.

First of all I create my drawings using pen, ink and watercolours. I then scan the image into my computer, resize it so it will fit perfectly onto the china, then send it to a man named Jason in Stoke-on-Trent (the pottery capital of England). Jason prints my image using sublimation inks then coats it with a magical formula that makes my image into a transfer (kind of like a temporary tattoo you used to put on a a child to trick your parents). Meanwhile I call up a man called Paul who also lives in Stoke-on-Trent to order some of his china.

Once the china and transfers have arrived at my little house, the fun can begin, I cut out the transfers and soak them in a bowl of water until they slip off the backing paper, I then very carefully apply the transfer to the surface of the piece, using a squigee to gently work out all the tiny air bubbles and creases until it is perfect. When I am happy that each transfer has been applied perfectly, I place my 'Mellor Ware' mark beneath each piece.

The china is then fired at 850 degrees for 12 hours. This re-glazes over the illustration and seals it on forever. All Mellor Ware is dishwasher and microwave safe. The colours will never fade or scratch off.
