  • Product Story

    James O’Brien’s potato printed plates are designed to make you smile, which makes sense considering the potato printer has dabbled in stand-up comedy. Sourcing second-hand dinner plates from different parts of London, James based each food design upon the area he found the plate. You’ll see pie and mash on plates from East London and full English breakfasts inspired by SW1’s iconic Regency Cafe.

  • Manufacturing Story

    Each plate has been hand printed at James’ Walthamstow studio using Maris Piper potatoes (a democratic choice).
