Fine English bone china coupe plate designed by artist Jane Lee McCracken, featuring her intricate black Biro drawing ‘Shh it’s a Tiger! '. This is the first design of her ‘Siberian Tiger’ diptych and one of eight designs from her iconic print and china series ‘In Homage to the Last Great Carnivores of Eurasia'. It highlights threatened and endangered carnivores across the Eurasian continent. Dedicated to the majestic Siberian Tiger of Ussuriland this Russian fantasy was inspired by images of Bengal Tigers bathing in forest pools, overlooked by ruined palaces. Amba, the Udege name for Siberian Tiger meaning ‘Guardian of the Forest’, is depicted sweeping across the pine trees through an antique dacha birdcage. A Red Army cavalry breaking through the forest heralds the historic circumstances that contributed to this tiger species’ decline. Jane's meticulous drawings take several months to research and make. A unique statement piece to display or as part of an elegant fine dining set, each plate design is a limited edition of 200. This exquisite collection is beautifully hand made to order in Stoke-on-Trent by prestigious ceramic designers and manufacturers The New English.

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.
