Ella was commissioned to design a collection of gifts and home accessories for Kew Gardens to be sold in Kew’s shops. The collection comprises mugs, coasters, table mats, cushions, mugs and mini prints.
All imagery was taken in the gardens and greenhouses of Kew and the designs convey the joy inspired by the beauty of plants. Aesthetic coherence is Ella’s hallmark. The individual pieces of Ella’s set of coasters stand for themselves but also communicate with each other. The same is true for her range of mugs.
Accordingly, Ella has translated Kew Gardens’ emphasis on the ecological interdependence of plant species into an aesthetic sense of connectedness that visitors are invited to take home, as stylish, uplifting pieces.
