The source of inspiration for Louisa's work stems from museum collections of 18th Century dining vessels. She is fascinated by the rituals of dining and the role of tableware in contemporary dining. Louisa creates objects for the home that aim not to prescribe specific functions but instead encourage sharing and relaxed eating; she likes the suggestion of how eating meals together can build stronger bonds and relationships within the family unit. Each piece is made from porcelain and thrown on the potters wheel. Louisa creates components which she then cuts, freely assemble and finish by hand.
The subtle colour palette of the range is directly influenced by hand painted decoration on historical tureens and grand vessels. She deconstructs each individual colour and matches it with glaze. She uses the content of the decoration to inform the overall composition of the piece; for example the height of the vessel correlates to the proportion of the colour in the pattern, jug forms suggest birds or figurative details. The intention is to create works that as a whole, describe the pattern from where they derived.
