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. Dedicated to the majestic Siberian tiger of Ussuriland this Russian fantasy was inspired by images of Bengal tigers bathing in forest pools, overlooked by the ruined palaces of Ranthambore. Amba, the Udege name for Siberian tiger meaning Guardian of the Forest, is depicted sweeping through the pine trees and layered over an antique dacha birdcage. A Red Army cavalry breaking out of the forest heralds the historical circumstances that contributed to this tiger species’ decline. This beautiful mug features a wrapped mirror image of 'Shh, it's a Tiger!' drawing, creating an abstract tangle of patterns in the center of the design, giving a magical impression of the tiger's dense forest habitat. The interior depicts the walking tiger from original Biro drawing 'Bang!' who looks directly into the eyes of the mug user as they drink. On the handle is a small image of a ghostly tiger and Udege woman walking side by side. This creates an optical illusion when the mug is viewed from a distance as the couple appears to be walking out of the forest.

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.
