Lovely limited edition screenprint inspired by the shipping forecast. As featured in Handmade Living magazine.
A blue & white striped mug of hot tea with a wisp of steam above. A list of the shipping forecast areas follows the curves of the steam. Meticulously traced from my own drawings and digital design then screen printed by hand in my home studio whilst listening to the radio. This is a handmade product, small variations make each print unique.
Also available as a tea towel. This print makes a lovely companion to my other Radio 4 inspired print, ‘Ambridge’.

"And now the Shipping Forecast, issued by the Met Office on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency...". This is my tribute to a quintessentially British listening experience!
I'm a landlubber but often find myself sitting with a nice cup of tea listening to the shipping forecast on Radio 4. There's a certain poetry in the names of those sea areas, everyone has their favourites, mine are German Bight & Dogger. I like to imagine salty old sea dogs huddled around crackly radios eager for news of incoming gales.
