A Passion for China Summary


A Passion for China: A Little Book About the Objects We Eat from, Live with and Love by Molly Hatch

A Passion for China is a personal celebration of the everyday beauty of tableware. Acclaimed ceramicist, artist and designer Molly Hatch explores the family stories behind beloved items; the bowls and cups we have inherited or chosen with love and care. Molly Hatch also brings the history of porcelain, potteries and patterns to life through her stunning, hand-drawn illustrations. 'As we move through our daily lives, eating breakfast, sipping an afternoon cup of tea or gathering for a family dinner, the patterned ceramic objects we live with are precious witnesses to our stories. We eat from them, they warm our hands after a cold walk outdoors and we pull them out to celebrate the births, marriages and lives of our loved ones.' A tribute to the rich heritage of the vintage plates, jugs and pots that make our homes our own.

A Passion for China Reviews


`Looking at the family china, full of memory and meaning to her personally, she was driven back to the museums where she first studied as a young artist. Her research led to a new book, A Passion for China. And in the process she learned much about the subtle but powerful influence homeware has on us all - including what we search for to replace pieces that are lost or broken.' The Guardian | ` We eat from them, they warm our hands after a cold walk outdoors, we pull them out to celebrate the births, marriages and lives of our loved ones, we sometimes drop them carelessly or smash them in anger, and then we work to delicately glue them back together. Their familiarity becomes a part of our sense of ourselves, a sense of our home.' Molly Hatch quoted in iNews | `I love everything about it... Every page is covered with beautiful illustrations and snippets of text... I love it and I think you will too.' Marmalade Pie | `Artist and ceramicist Molly Hatch makes whimsical, charming, yet undeniably special pottery... In her new, beautifully illustrated book, A Passion for China: A Little Book About the Objects We Eat From, Live with and Love, she explores the roots of her own fascination with fine ceramics (mainly objects in her grandmother's house) as well as the more immediate enjoyment that well-used porcelain can present (many of her grandmother's things were chipped from being used and not cabineted away - imbuing each piece with loving, happy memories).'
