These John Newdigate plates, designed in collaboration with West Elm, echo the wavy pattern of this late 19th century cotton swatch. 

The South African ceramicist speaks of the ocean’s influence in his art:

The most important theme in my work, and my constant inspiration, is the ever-changing sea, which has always fascinated me - not just the creatures in it, but also the interplay of light and water. From the ordered chaos of white horses on a choppy sea to the synergy of a school of anchovies, there seems to be enough inspiration in and around the sea and its shores to last many lifetimes.”
