Newark Swans

Newark Swans Medium

Newark Swans Small

A collection of swan figurines displayed on a bedroom window sill at National Trust property Newark Park inspired this striking design. The pure lines of the porcelain, arranged like swans on a lake, was begging to be drawn into a pattern. Despite being one of the smallest of all of Susie's carved blocks, and the simple composition and the bold contrasts result in a striking, somehow contemporary repeat. 

This is a block printed design that is currently available as digitally printed soft furnishing fabric, here. The original hand printed texture has deliberately left in when being digitally reproduced, to add interest and to express the hand made origin.
