The Avenida Home Puddin'head collection, designed by Sydney based print maker and illustrator Richard McAdam, comprises charming and unusual homeware. Richard's aim is to create original designs like those found in galleries, while making them accessible and relevant to everyday living.
Manufactured using traditional rather than modern manufacturing practices, his work is instantly recognisable and characterised by strong and distinctive images. The sources of inspiration for Puddin'head are varied; many designs are imagined from ideas based on classical books and they often have mythical and surreal elements. Richard's whimsical sense of humour and charisma are expressed through and can be seen in all of his creations.
In collaboration with the artist, Avenida Home have released a range of exclusive tableware and table accessories, namely mugs, placemats and coasters, featuring unique and playful illustrations of animals standing out on different coloured backgrounds, with flowers blooming from their tails, trunks, horns, ears or antlers. The animal designs available include a Rhino, Rooster, Deer Stag, Elephant, Fox, Hare, Monkey, Squirrel and Pig. The most recent additions to the Puddin'head collection are the Octopus, Seahorse and Whale designs.
Avenida Puddin'head placemats and coasters are hard-wearing, easy to clean, stain resistant and heat resistant to 160°C. Made of eucalyptus board with a gloss finish protective melamine coating and non slip black baize felt backing, they are as practical as they are eye-catching.
The mugs in the Avenida Puddin'head collection are made in Portugal from high quality porcelain and hand glazed. Dishwasher safe, they are perfect for everyday use. The mugs feature luxurious gold print detail on the floral designs.
