James Ward: Owls In Red Pants Teapot

I am loving the pen and ink animal illustrations by James Ward on surfaces of plates, cake stands and teapots.

His work is based on the idea "that big scary animals can still express themselves and still like to eat cakes off plates!...What I like about drawing animal characters is the response from people who identify with them."

This beautiful teapot features 5 hand-drawn owls relaxing after a long night and watching people drinking their tea. Oh, did I mention they like wearing pants.
