The Garden Ware range is a collaborative body of work between artist Bruce Mclean and Stoke on Trent potters, 1882 Ltd. The collection includes one-off earthenware creations, including vases, bowls, platters and tableware, all inspired by the Mclean’s garden and a three-foot-tall vase that McLean made in 1987, which is held in the V&A collection.
The Garden Ware platters are unique in an edition of 50. Each piece of earthenware displays a silkscreen decoration chosen from Mclean’s Garden Ware artwork. After firing, the artist added colour elements to each platter by hand with enamel paint, before a second firing. Each platter is numbered on the back.
