By Mutti is a line of porcelain & home wear brand, made by artist and ceramist Eva Gernandt. Each piece is rich in history and symbolism, and is made to last. Scandinavian ceramicist Eva Gernandt spent her childhood by the sea, building boats. She spent time working with fisherman which inspired her unique collection of illustrated porcelain tableware. The collection is crafted using high quality feldspar porcelain produced in a small family owned factory in Kanton, China. Her pieces might look like traditional china, but take a closer look. You will see that each of the illustrations are inspired by nautical tattoos.
We bought this plate on a day out in Brighton from an amazing little shop at 28a North Road Brighton. The shop is called Utility. I love the fact that it has a nice story to it, taken from drawing of Tattoos of sailors.
