Tabletop: Some British Birds Ceramics by Edwyn Collins for Elli Popp

BY Julie Carlson

Yesterday, we featured Edwyn Collins' bird drawings for the LIberty Rocks! fabric collection. Today, we're featuring his line of ceramics for Elli Popp. An indie musician, Collins is best known for fronting Scottish rock revivalists Orange Juice and for his international solo hit "A Girl Like You." After suffering a series of strokes in 2005, Collins illustrated a compendium of British birds on a daily basis as part of his rehabilitation; the poignant drawings are notable for their delicacy (all the more remarkable considering that Collins had use of only his left hand). To learn more about Collins, read " My Feathered Friends" in the Guardian.
