* Designer * Artist * Illustrator * Blogger... * - Lucy King

 I'd like you to meet Lucy - like me she is a textile designer, and an English gal living in Australia!

This talented lady, Lucy King is a Print Designer and Illustrator, specialising in surface 

pattern design across varied creative platforms. She can boast a diverse range of work and 

international clients (although I'm sure she wouldn't boast - we British don't tend to like 

to!!). Lucy's designs and creations include textiles such as Bed linen & interior furnishings

as well as tableware products and children's products.

She has previously worked for Wedgewood, in the UK, as a tableware pattern designer,

but she now lives in Melbourne, and works from her own studio there, as a freelance 

illustrator and designer.

Just look at these examples of her beautiful quintessentially English illustration style.


Translated into tableware, these illustrations look stunning!

Me Old China!!!
My favourite aspect of Lucy's work has to be her 'Me Old China' range - a unique collection of designs created from pre-loved old and vintage plates; discarded crockery that is given a  

 second lease of life, crafted by Lucy into bespoke collections of over-scaled
                                                           jewellery and wall plates

You can buy this pendant (right) & more of the range from Lucy's
Etsy shop.

(note: these three images are from Lucy's Etsy shop)

Diamond shaped willow pendant - $70

I also adore Lucy's sketchbook illustrations of vintage kitchenalia...

See you soon,
