Inspired by the treasured collection of chinese vintage thermos that my mother has, these giclee prints are printed from cut paper collages of repurposed linocut misprints and ink swatches. 

From repurposed cut paper collages

My mother has numerous thermos - all different sizes, and all with bright coloured, auspicious, designs on them, each of them with sentimental value to her. It was only when I visited the kitchens of my many Aunties that they also have a similar treasured collection. All of them storing freshly boiled water for drinking. 

Due to the printmaking process itself, it can produce a lot of misprints and I always test the ink colours on little bits of paper. I wouldn’t be happy to offer up these misprints as they are, so they just end up in a paper stack in the corner of my studio, or the recycle bin. I have really enjoyed repurposing these and cutting them up to make new designs - essentially giving a new purpose to something that would have been thrown away.

Each of these designs are reminiscent of those vintage style thermos flasks, and a tribute to all the precious collections that our mothers and aunties have in their kitchen. They are a great way to add some colour to your wall, whilst reminding you of home. The size of them means they are also very easy to post, and so are very easily giftable.
