One of a set of seven finest English bone china mugs featuring Jane's original Biro drawings from her series 'In Homage to the Last Great Carnivores of Eurasia'. Hand decorated and made in Stoke-on-Trent to the highest standard by prestigious ceramic designers and manufacturers The New English, each mug has been specifically designed by Jane as a small piece of art in functional form, incorporating symbolism and a "little surprise inside!." Featuring an elegant handle, these contemporary yet timeless designs create unique conversation pieces as well as a beautiful gift for someone special. 'Our Forefathers Our Loss' design features both drawings from the Amur leopard diptych which contemplate the origins and repercussions of man’s fascination with collecting natural exotica from early European exploration to the present day. This is symbolised by a representation of Rembrandt’s 'The Windmill' 1641, as the windmill becomes an exotic folly for three Amur leopards, one of the world’s most endangered species. This stunning mug focuses on an enlarged image of the leaping leopard, it's paw outstretched towards the handle as if taking a swipe at the mug user, its tail flicked inside the mug. A more complete image of the original drawing features on the mug back emphasising the windmill. The interior features the two leopard faces from Our Loss, their eyes peering out of the mug at the world around them.

Meet The Designer

Artist Jane Lee McCracken constructs intricate multi-layered Biro drawings and sculptures and installations incorporating her drawings. Born in Edinburgh, her work is impassioned by childhood memoirs, fairy tales, forests, wildlife, films and documentaries. Along with her continuing interest in war and loss Jane's artwork is both beautiful and representational of life's brutal reality. Her meticulous drawings take several months to research and make, and incorporate complex and symbolic drawing layers. Her working process often includes photographing television screens as films or documentaries are played. This produces inspirational images to work from, giving her drawings a cinematic quality. Jane's exquisite print and fine English bone china collection of plates and mugs 'In Homage to the Last Great Carnivores of Eurasia' celebrate the beauty and majesty of threatened and endangered carnivores across the Eurasian continent, whilst highlighting the challenges they face in an uncertain world. China plates and mugs are made in Stoke-on-Trent to the highest standard by prestigious ceramic designers and manufacturers The New English. Each plate design is a limited signed and hand numbered edition of 200. Sumptuous archival pigment prints in editions of 50 per design, beautifully reproduced from Jane's original Biro drawings are made by one of the very best printmakers in the industry.
