ABOUT ANNA WEATHERLEY:
As an international designer, Anna Weatherley’s career has included designing and manufacturing couture fashion, jewelry, home furnishings, and printed textiles. In the early 1990s, she established a studio in Budapest, Hungary, where she trained a group of highly talented painters to create her collection of hand-painted porcelain—a long tradition in Hungary going back almost two centuries.
Masters of mixing colors and painting delicate details of her designs, the artisans in Weatherley’s studio are trained in the classical painting tradition. Weatherley’s designs are inspired by the early botanical illustrators of 18th century Europe, such as Pierre-Joseph Redouté and Georg Dionysius Ehret, and Dutch still life paintings have also been a source of design inspiration.
In 2008, Weatherley created a large dinner set collection for the White House. Her porcelain is also used at the Blair House, the official guesthouse for visiting heads of state. Then, in 2011, she was comissioned to create a collection of dinner plates for a dinner at Buckingham Palace in honor of the Prince of Wales.
Her porcelain designs can be found in high-end exclusive retailers across the United States, at her local Arlington studio, and in London, Paris, and Tokyo.
