Parrots, also known as psittacines, are birds of the roughly 372 species in 86 genera that make up the order Psittaciformes, found in most tropical and subtropical regions.
'The Animal Collection' is a series of original illustrations by Eleanor Stuart of abstract exotic animals in full colour. Originally drawn by hand, each illustration is a detailed line drawing of some unusual and beautiful exotic animals from around the world.
Straying from the path of illustrating traditional animals, Eleanor created a series of unusual and exotic animals for her collection, employing a unique abstract illustrative style of line drawings to create each drawing. Each illustration is carefully created by designing a series of drafts to create the most interesting collection of shapes and lines within each animal to make each design a beautifully intricate illustration.
Each drawing is hand screen-printed and decorated in Stoke-on-Trent on to a fine bone china plate. The traditional screen printing method uses specially mixed paints per design to create strong, vibrant and unique coloured plates, each selected based on colours found within each animal - from citrus yellow Seahorses to inky purple Octopuses to deep red Lobsters.
The plates are perfect to be used for sharing platters and presentation plates, or grouped together for a colourful collection of exotic animals.
