A unique piece of art for using and enjoying
How about high tea on a teddies plate? Working from one of my photographs I paint the mugs in batches of about 6 so that there is consistency in the colours of the teddies. With the paint, I build layers of colour which creates texture on the mug and adds to their vibrancy. The paints are ceramic and once dry are baked in the oven to cure the paint which makes them dishwasher proof. The mugs we are using are beautifully thin bone china, just right for a lovely cup of tea or coffee. These teddies are all on the 6-inch rim plate is perfect for our children’s range, especially as a gift with the teddy mug. To see more information and compare sizes link here.
About the teddy in the picture
I love the way these two teddies sit together on the plate, slightly different and each a different colour. I started with teddies when I wanted to make my granddaughter a birth present that she could use or keep. I look back at the cup and the plate and laugh and I’m delighted to have moved on and been creating products that I like I’ll do another one of these days. These are lovely for children and you can get the plate to go with them. They are perfect for customing. If you have an old teddy I could paint that for you on your plate and or a mug if you take a photograph See customising a product
If you’re going down the theme of teddies you could also add some teddy biscuits. Check out this store www.artisanbiscuits.co.uk they have some great looking teddy bear biscuits

Care for your mug
The painted plates have a texture created by the build-up of the paint. They are dishwasher safe and fade safe. Do not use abrasive cloths or scourers on the painting and it can damage or remove the paint. They are safe to eat off but I would recommend keeping them for toast and jam rather than dippy egg. If something like egg does dry on the plate soak in warm water and wipe off with a soft cloth
