Homebakes Ceramics

While browsing my local Anthropologie last month, I came across a few ceramics I’d not seen online before so I went home and did a little research to locate the source. Some of the pretty things I found are by a ceramicist based in South Africa, Wendy McLachlan, and she owns a small company called Homebakes which is exactly the brand Anthropologie now carries. Wendy attended the University of Cape Town, where she obtained a Master of Fine Art degree in ‘01 and went on to open Homebakes where she has had a great deal of success producing functional teatime ceramics which play upon themes found in traditional bone china where delftware printing and gold lustre embellishments are given a fresh, contemporary interpretation.

Homebakes

You can find some of her things on their website here. Aren’t these so pretty? I adore the drippy gold trim on the creamer and sugar holder and of course the dragonfly motif. Tea time anyone? :)

    They’re lovely, I really like the chunky handles, they make a difference to the delicate little ones I’m always scared of breaking!

    How gorgeous! I was drawn in by the beautiful teacups and then read that she was from Cape Town, where I grew up and then after looking on her website and seeing her telephone number I see that she lives in Pinelands – the same area I lived in when I was a teenager! There are so many talented people in South Africa and strangely I tend to find out about them online!
