History

It might be from visiting museums or maybe it is because Brittany has a long tradition in ceramics. Or maybe it is linked to an interest in history and the arts or simple curiosity.

Whatever the reason... something inspired Eleanor Lehtela, founder of Imagine Design, to create ceramic pieces and decorate them with pictures, paintings, portraits from coffee cups using Gauguin paintings to brooches with old photographs of Sarah Bernhardt in costume, or even Mona Lisa as a Bigoudène Breton woman,... and the inspiration is infinite.

Faces from ancient fresques, words written by Marie-Antoinette, notes left by Mozart, the idea is to take these fragments and cameo a detail, a word... on all sorts of ceramic pieces, from cups to mugs, to necklaces, brooches, earings, porcelaine boxes, expresso cups, trivits, tea pots, magnets, or a simple tile.

All of the works are available in very limited series, many handcrafted and unique, or special orders.

If you happen to be anywhere near Plomelin (Brittany, France), you will enjoy a visit to the « Longère », Eleanor's shoppe and workshop.
