Susan Williams-Ellis was searching for antique engravings to decorate her pottery when she discovered The Universal Herbal by Thomas Green (c. 1817). Filled with striking, detailed botanical illustrations, Susan began to imagine a beautiful range of dinnerware.
The Making of The Garden
Captivated by nature, Susan added butterflies and other insects to the designs to add variety and intrigue to the floral motifs depicted on the tableware. To bring the range together, Susan developed the iconic triple-leaf border.
Objections Are Forms of Uncertainty
In those years, it was expected that dinner plates matched exactly. Stores refused to stock Susan's mixed floral designs, citing that no one would buy plates with different motifs, but Botanic Garden captured the public's imagination and the success of the range soon proved store management wrong.
How Does The Garden Grow?
Botanic Garden's mixed floral designs are a collector's dream. With new flowers being introduced as old are retired, it is rare that anyone's exact Botanic Garden collection is identical. Over the years, modern interpretations of the iconic range have been introduced, such as Botanic Garden Harmony and Botanic Garden Bouquet.
