At long last, my new tea towels are ready to roll, and as I’ve been wanting to start a Supermarket Store for a while, I thought I’d launch the store and this new range of tea towels at the same time. So, here they are, all available in my Supermarket online shop.
I came up with the design after visiting the Cooper Hewitt museum in New York, where there was an amazing exhibition of glassware curated by Ted Muhling. Photos were not allowed, so I sketched a lot, them made a paper cutout afterwards. Also, I took photos of the shadows cast by Roman glass at the Metropolitan (see below), and both these ideas came together in Shadow Glass.
I’d been dying to do a cutout of tea cups for ages, and had lots of fun doing this on one of my Making Fridays (see cutout below). It took me a while to work out exactly how to put the cutouts together as a design, but I had a brainwave when looking at all our teacups and mugs were piled high after Paul’s birthday tea.
Leaves is such an old cutout of mine – I did it for an exhibition in 2006 (see below) – but I was glad to use it again, as I always liked it.
Visit my Supermarket shop to see more pics of all my new tea towels, as well as a couple of old favourites too.
And don’t worry, my Etsy shop still exists, and I’ll be selling yardage and limited runs of things from there.
