Eclectic Cake Stand by Imogen Luddy

Imogen Luddy's work ranges from a laser cut stainless steel tabletop influenced by 16th century Italian lace to Digital Doily Cake plates, table linen and a plethora of other desirable interiors products. Working across a wide range of media and processes - including laser cutting, embroidery, crochet and ceramics - she looks for new and innovative ways to explore traditional craft techniques, using her distinctive illustrative style.

Taking antique lace, doilies and embroidered samplers as a starting point, she aims to subvert the traditional materials and craft practises used to create them by ‘digitising’ their structures and reproducing them in unexpected materials. 

I'm totally enamoured with her 3 tiered cake stand; hand illustrated onto vintage ceramic plate with laser cut brushed stainless steel and acrylic tiers. Her set of four bone china plates with hand drawn doily prints give a fresh new perspective on the traditional concept of using doilies for teatime entertaining.

 Imogen's products are available to buy online at The Designers Makers Shop.

Does it rotate? I want to try a wedding cake showing all its sides, catching the attention of the guests.
