Ceramicist Janet Stahelin Edmondson works in Limoges Porcelain into which she presses lace and embroidery to produce an impressed decoration. The finished vases and vessels are translucent and delicate, but watertight.
For weddings, she makes commissioned pieces using the bride's own lace or embroidery. "The process does not damage the textile," she explains, "and the end result will be personal to you and your wedding."
Previous commissions have included presents for mother of the bride or groom and bridesmaids, with one bride giving vintage brooches presented in tiny porcelain bowls decorated with lace from her dress.
