Here at Little Beach Boutique we have been spending the first few weeks of the year creating some new ranges and products. We are delighted with our first range of Brighton themed mugs, which have been created from our own illustrations featuring some of our favourite buildings and places in Brighton and Hove.
Featuring the beach huts of Hove seafront, the Palace Pier, the Bandstand and the famous legs on top of the Duke of York’s Cinema, they reflect the colour and diversity of Brighton.
The images wrap around the mug so they are different on each side. Our Bandstand mug also features the West Pier and the starling murmurations that are seen flying over head at dusk.
The mugs are on fine white china and are tall and tactile. They are now available to buy online.
As well as mugs, we have been creating some new screen-prints to add to our range of framed glass tiles. Inspired by old and new architecture of the city, we have illustrated the recently erected BAi360 as well as some iconic Regency and terraced town houses, which we have made into a screen to use to print onto glass coasters and tiles.
The BAi360 on Brighton and Hove Seafront
The curved roofs of Brighton and Hove Regency townhouses
The terraces synonymous with Hanover in Brighton.
We have also created a larger silk screen of the iconic Palace Pier so that we can produce a large curve or wall panel and fill it with...more colour!
Work in progress - screen-printing onto clear sheet glass and layering it with crushed coloured glass in lots of vibrant tones.
The finished piece - a free-standing curved glass ornament which has been fired twice. It will look so beautiful in some Spring sunshine! We have added it to our online shop.
We are continuing to build our own in-house ranges, so feel free to give us your suggestions - and watch this space for more coming soon!
