Mellor Ware is designed by Lianne Mellor a designer and an illustrator. She grew up on the Wirral, her childhood was filled with fun activities like making dens, drawing pictures and listening to stories.
When she graduated in 2009 she realized that her passion was story telling through watercolor illustrations. Gradually she started to build her portfolio of drawings into collection of functional products. By 2010, she was producing bone china tea sets in her dad's garage and selling them at art markets.
Lianne's ceramics now have stockists in Europe, Japan and America. Her chinaware range from milk jugs and sugar bowls to cups and plates all adorned with joyful and mischievous animal characters who seem to be straight from a picture book.
