Melody Roseâ€™s Melanie Roseveare talks to Tableware International about her love of breathing new life into vintage ceramics
Melanie Roseveare is a designer who is clearly beyond passionate about ceramics â€“ in all its shapes and forms.
So much so that she created the Melody Rose Upcycled Collection in 2011 â€“ it combines two things, her love of vintage china and an urge to be more eco-friendly.
Melanie makes each upcycled batch in small numbers, or just as one offs, which are available via her website.
Each piece has been rethought, reimagined, redesigned â€“ given a new lease of life by Melanie before being refired in the kiln at over 850 degrees. And while they are entirely beautiful to look at â€“ they are also completely functional, designed to be used every day.
â€œThe work focuses on marrying the unexpected with the traditional; images that shock and please in equal measure; pretty vintage Victoriana china with tantalising imagery, the juxtaposition of quaint and quirky,â€ Melanie explains.
