Tectonic Plate #32 - 'Full English' by Manko

Sometimes, down here in the Antipodes, it takes us a little bit of time to catch on.  I know, I know – with the advent of the internet, we no longer have any excuse, but still…

Having only recently discovered The New English modern take on ceramics, I am loving their range of Tectonic Plates,  a selection of almost 300 quirky and collectable art plates. Hung on a wall or placed artfully on your table, these plates are produced by The New English in Stoke on Trent from the finest bone china.

The plates are designed to appeal to a contemporary audience and feature the work of artists, designers, and all round clever people from across the globe, some famous names, some up and coming. I’m starting my collection with Number 32, the ‘Full English’ (above).

There are loads to choose from, though.  One could say there’s almost something for everyone:

Now I just have to find an appropriate wall on which to display my (soon to be) growing collection…
