A Wedding Gift with an Unusual Twist

First-time customers Franziska Schäfer and Carolin Kroneberger initially approached us Skull, tea set, alternative design, coffee set with questions about our printing service; something we welcome and encourage if you are new to digital ceramic transfers.

Could they have varying sizes of their design on one sheet, and could they send a Photoshop document with the background removed? The answer to both queries was yes, and with that we awaited their order.

Being more than used to a wide variety of artwork coming our way, when Franziska and Carolin sent through their illustrations we knew they must have something interesting in mind for their work.
We were not disappointed.

They told us “we wanted to create a fancy coffee set as a wedding present for our friend. She’s a skull fan – so we chose an anatomical skull as the motif for six different vintage place settings, which match together to make one coffee set.”

The finished pieces subvert the macabre by contrasting the skulls against classic floral china patterns; the result is a unique gift that the bride absolutely loved.
