Inspiration for the print ‘Harvest’:
Harvest is the autumnal version of our palm print “Shangri La”. The lush flora of Penang, a stunningly beautiful island on the coast of Malaysia, serves as the inspiration for the teal and magenta palm print on this china cup and saucer. As a result, a variety of the island’s most beautiful native flora features in the print.
Theses gems includes House of Hopstock's favourites, for instance the red stemmed Lipstick Palm and the wavy leaves of theBirds Nest Fern. Also making a star appearance are the iconic Lobster Claw plant, and the delightful little clusters of the Red Ginger flower. In conclusion, Shangri La is a vibrant and colourful print, sure to add some luxury to your life. The print also comes in a teal/magenta/pink, and red/white/green version.
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.
