- 6 March 2012
From sublime porcelain vases to limited edition prints, make this Mother's Day special with a gift from the Art Fund shop
Make this a Mother's Day to remember with a gift from the Art Fund shop. From sublime porcelain vases to exclusive limited-edition prints, our online store has something to make any mum feel special.
1. Sweet pea bangle
Inspired by the spectacular mountain landscape of North Wales, Rauni Higson creates pieces using a process that combines fold forming with traditional metalwork techniques. This sterling silver bangle is an exquisite example of her work.
Each year the Art Fund commissions an artist to create a 'brushstroke', a unique piece of art available exclusively from the Art Fund shop. Dame Paula Rego's distinctive brushstroke Pregnant One, printed on white velvet with an oak frame, is one of the highlights of the collection.
3. Alex Katz notecards
Featuring designs by American figurative artist Alex Katz, these colourful notecards add a touch of elegance to any correspondence. The cards are available in two packs: one featuring Ocean View (1992) and Penobscot (1999), the other Tulips (1983) and Lilies Against Yellow house (1967).
4. Sweet pea pendant
Created in Rauni Higson's Snowdonia studio, this delicate sterling silver pendant is a perfect gift. Higson's organic methods make each piece of jewellery unique, with an imperfect symmetry reflecting the influence of nature.
5. Porcelain vase
The handmade design of this beautiful porcelain vase is taken from antique lace. The piece is inspired by designer Stahelin Edmondson's rich family history in European fashion, fabric and textiles.
