Eric Ravilious meets Orla Kiely, Angie Lewin and Elaine Pamphilon

August 7, 2010

There’s a real feeling of satisfaction when artists who you admire come together.

It’s a peacefulness that you can only feel by association to their work and knowing

why they have chosen that route or artistic direction. Such was the inner satisfaction when I discovered

Angie Lewin is also a huge fan of the work of Eric Ravilious (possibly my all time favourite artist.)

I love the way she includes his Alphabet Mug and his 1953 QE2 Coronation Mug in her beautiful work.

and in the same way, talented artist Elaine Pamphilon has also discovered Eric’s work and Orla Kiely too!

I’ll certainly be blogging more about Mr Ravilious in the future… watch this space !

      Well spotted young lady ! He did originally make one for the 1937 King George the 6th and the same design was used for the QE2 Coronation after Ravilious’s death. I’m completely self taught when it comes to art history, so there’s plenty of hope for you yet lol. Glad it inspires you too x
