Inspiration for the print ‘Fatal Attraction’:
The bold and playful frog print for this colourful milk jug was inspired by aposematism. This is when animals and insects evolve bright colours signalling their toxicity, to keep predators at bay. The print includes fabulous poison dart frogs as well as a stunning selection of beetles, including the charming ladybug. Being attracted to what isn’t necessarily good for us (in this case fatal…) is a familiar yet risky concept. However, with this statement print you are safe to explore your attractions freely and with decadence.
House of Hopstock uses a lot of the same colours in all their china products, which makes it easier for you to mix and match!
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Aase Hopstock is a Norwegian-born artist who has lived in London for 16 years. For as along as she can remember, she has been obsessed with colour, form, texture, glamour, beauty and aesthetics, not to mention a neatly sharpened set of pencils.
Having told aesthetic tales through stage costumes, her own footwear brand, as well as numerous published illustrated works, Aase developed a great interest in the stories and philosophies that drive people’s personal sense of colour and style. After growing somewhat weary of fashion cycle, Aase decided to go back to her first love, drawing, and create a brand with a stronger sense of sustainability and permanence. In 2018, House of Hopstock was launched as her own illustrated universe, full of prints, vibrancy and colour.
House of Hopstock has a unique aesthetic, focusing on modern, bold, and vibrant illustrated prints. It is neither shy nor understated. Stories are an important part of the brand, be it the story behind the product and who produced it, to the materials used, as well as the story behind each print.
Currently the brand offers velvet cushions, fine bone china with 22ct gold detailing, kitchen textiles, wallpaper, fine art prints, as well as beauty bags and lavender-filled eye masks. Great value is placed on the ideas of quality, sustainability, and permanence. The entire production chain is based in the UK, with transparency and provenance being protagonists, and all print collections are made to last.
