These postcards with matching envelopes are inspired by a beautiful C16th water cooler I saw in a museum in Mallorca while on holiday. The pot was glazed with these stylised waves inspired by a traditional Chinese motif, popularised and called siegaiha in Japan - but in the pot the very precise design has been softened by a bravura brushstroke which is what I fell in love with.
I spent a good while trying to emulate the playfulness within the rhythm of the pattern in watercolour and then combined my version with one of my favourite quotes - by the American author H.D.Thoreau.
I had them professionally printed onto a beautiful textured card which is very like the original watercolour paper.
Each set has 6 notecards and envelopes - the back of the card has a detail of the watercolour.
