Pleased to meet you..my name is Yvonne Lee and I run Allegoric Designs from my studio in rural Dorset. I create uniquely illustrated kitchen + giftware for people who love to share simple food around a table with good friends.
You may be searching to find something unusual, creative but contemporary and practical as a finishing touch with a twist for your own kitchen. Maybe a gift for someone who loves their cuppa in an original fine bone china mug and just loves chickens. Or maybe you had a great weekend away in the country and just want a little treat to remind you. Whatever it may be my aim is to make people smile whilst offering them original designs in contemporary country kitchen colours, hand in hand with high quality, practical products made in England.
All Allegoric’s products feature my exclusive illustrations. I’ve been a professional artist and illustrator since graduating from my BA Illustration in 2005 and graduated with my MA in Illustration recently. Sunny Dorset days are spent sketching in the countryside, so my designs are truly original. I began Allegoric Designs whilst struggling to find some new placemats and coasters for my new kitchen. I was looking for kitchen goodies which fitted a modern country kitchen but had a Dorset countryside flavour. Not finding what I was looking for I created my own with a cuppa never very far away!
The current Circus Farm kitchen and tableware range, inspired by the inhabitants of the lovely Dorset countryside, consists of aprons & tea towels, placemats & coasters, and fine bone china mugs & jugs. A new greeting card range has now been added. I hope you like them too!
More coming this way soon…
