The Willow Pattern is a distinctive and elaborate chinoiserie pattern used on ceramics, fabrics and wallpapers that became popular at the end of the eighteenth century with English ceramics artists who combined and adapted motifs inspired by fashionable hand-painted blue-and-white wares imported from China. The evolution of this style occurred at a time when mass-production of decorative tableware, at Stoke-on-Trent and elsewhere, was already making use of engraved and printed glaze transfers referred to as decals todays, rather than hand-painting, for the application of ornament to standardised ceramic products in porcelain and fine bone china. Many different Chinese-inspired landscape patterns were at first produced in this way on ceramics and the Willow pattern became the most popular with various permutations in production to the present day. Characteristically, the background colour is white and the image blue, but various factories have used other colours. Artist, Mariko Jesse offers a modern twist on the classic Willow Pattern with a series of artworks, giving her take on this classic design steeped in tradition. Respecting the traditional motifs of these Chinese inspired landscapes that became fashionable in Europe in the late eighteenth century, her layout is executed in a modern topographical design.
