Jill Welham: The Blue and White Collection
What's not to love about traditional blue and white? Think Delft pottery, Willow Pattern designs and Cornishware, simple blue and white designs that are timeless. The traditional cyanotype method was invented in 1842 by Sir John Herschel, it is an historic photographic technique that combines two chemicals - ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide, mixed together with water to create a photosensitive solution which is painted onto the surface of high quality paper and left to dry. Objects such as plants and flowers are placed on top of the dry paper and this is then exposed to UV light to create the image. Jill uses the North Yorkshire sun wherever possible but a UV lamp can be used in winter if necessary. Some of the work is available to purchase from Jill's Etsy shop
