Californian artist Deborah M Allen creates abstract works based on watercolour techniques, which resemble clouds of ink in water. Her latest project is ‘Jenny’, a range of ceramics for 1882Ltd, the Staffordshire-based maker of contemporary bone china. Who is Jenny? She’s the mum of 1882Ltd’s founder, Emily Johnson, who died of cancer last year. Five per cent of all sales from this range will be donated to cancer charity Macmillan Cancer Support. Plates from £23 (1882ltd.com).
