FUNK {SHON} a playful pun on the word function, was a body of utilitarian ceramics created to bring some ‘bling’ to your dinning experience and provide a healthy portion of art in all of our daily diets.  What better way to provide that than on a beautifully decorated plate or cup or bowl?  These brilliant funky functional ceramic wares are the result of a combining the designs found in colourful European 17th century ceramic decorative art forms and African textiles.
