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. Three-colour screenprint ('cornishware' blue, 'milky tea' beige & a lovely subtle blue-grey I'm calling 'stormy seas') on satisfyingly thick 220gsm Seawhite cartridge paper. These are printed by hand, small variations make each print unique.
Back by popular demand! Reprinted in a 5th Edition of 90 prints. Each print in the edition is signed, titled and numbered. The 5th edition is noted by a Roman numeral beside the edition number. The framed photos are of the 2nd edition.

"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.
