Yellow Foxglove

Tube lining is a method of decorating glazed items developed in the late 19th Century and used extensively during the Arts and Crafts and art nouveau periods.

It requires a high degree of skill, as the outline of each design is piped by hand onto each individual piece. Different coloured translucent glazes are then applied - again by hand - to the separate areas of the design to create exquisite works of art.
