Oprah's Favorite 'Wild & Wooly'

Paperproducts Designs partnered with Vicki Sawyer an artist from  Franklin, Tennessee to launch delightful collection of  plates, mugs, matches and mugs featuring animal portraits.

The plate set 'Wild & Wooly' made list of Oprah’s Favorite Things in the December 2015 issue of O magazine! "These dishwasher – and microwave – safe new bone china plates will add a touch of whimsy to your appetizers and desserts." – Oprah Winfrey, O, The Oprah Magazine.

Several years ago during a nature walk it occurred to Sawyer that “if birds could build nests, then they could make hats.”! This notion inspired the series of bird paintings in which each bird is seen wearing a whimsical ‘hat’ made of leaves, flowers and other natural materials. You can find the all the products from the collection here.
