Lou Rota - gorgeous china

I recently came across this beautiful china on Pinterest and wanted to share ... maybe you already know about the artist Lou Rota who collaborated with Anthropologie to make them

Lou started customising old items of furniture, which turned into a successful business when Liberty London took all of her very first pieces.  Her interests took a different turn whilst out sourcing new furniture at a car boot sale.  She came across piles of vintage plates, bought a selection and set to work, upcycling them as one-off decorative pieces.  They were an instant hit, but as the plates were only intended for decoration Lou soon started getting requests for crockery that could be used and put in the dishwasher. The rest, as they say, is history and her range of kiln-fired bone china tableware was born.
