We’re really pleased to be working with printmaker and children’s illustrator, Lisa Stubbs, who has allowed us to offer this fabulous set of vintage screen prints. Whether it’s a golden syrup tin, Bird’s Baking Powder or an old jar of Dundee marmalade, each one conjures up a nostalgia in the form of the old can or jar that is now used as a vase for beautiful, simple flowers. Each print is created using many different colours, all applied in different layers. For example, Golden, has 11 , whereas Autumn Joy has eight and Waxflower seven layers of paint.
One set of these limited edition prints is currently on display at upmarket cafe, Weeton’s Food Hall in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Below is a series of photographs taken by Lisa Stubbs to show the screen printing process develop.
Lisa says, “I fell love with the 1950’s graphics mixed with the rust on a little beauty of a vintage Baking powder tin. I love the nostalgia it conjures up of home made baking days in a cosy kitchen! So, the little tin went onto inspire this print, ‘Waxflower and Baking Powder’, as a follow on from the ‘Golden‘ print I did a couple of months ago.”
Here’s how it all began…
