Gut reaction: explore the inner workings of your own inner workings with Anatomy of Digestion tableware…

Bring medical illustrations at their most opulent to the table with a collection of china designed to be part education, part conversation starter and all chic graphic statement

At first glance, the patterns applied to the fine china plates, cups and saucers of the Anatomy of Digestion range can be mistaken for the product of any number of trend-led design cues.

Geometric? Yes. Kaleidoscopic? Sure. Modern African monochrome? Why not.

But upon closer inspection, the four different mix-and-match designs of the range are based upon the anatomy of the human digestive system. Mmmm. Nice.

In the hands of Emily Evans, former medical illustrator and the artistic inspiration behind Anatomy Boutique, however, seemingly non-dining-appropriate subject matter takes on an elegant incarnation.

Inspired by her training, Evans has centred Anatomy Boutique around the beauty of the illustrated anatomy and this collection – based on four human tissue designs – is the newest and most deceptively chic to hit the table.

While brave and edgy in design, the traditional pottery provenance is strong. The range is hand made and hand gilded in Stoke-on-Trent, the heart of English pottery manufacturing.
