Venus & the Cat presents "Break the Mould" by 2021 IWS World Illustration Champion Hatch. A design created for Venus & the Cat to celebrate British figures from history that broke the mould. It is perfectly silkscreened onto Venus & the Cat's signature fine bone china pot (6.1 inches high) in a limited edition of 50.
Each Pot is hand made by more than twenty craftsmen in the heart of the Potteries and carries the Duchess China backstamp, alongside its unique edition number and arrives with an authenticity card, signed and numbered by the artist.
