Each HAM screen print is handmade using premium off-white paper.
The unframed print measures 30x40cm.
All HAM artwork is screen printed by hand. Their brilliant print specialist Sam, works meticulously with each design – first transferring the image to silk screen to create the stencil and then pulling each print individually by pushing ink through the screen's mesh using a squeegee. The result is a crisp, dense black silhouette which Jo then checks, signs and dates before carefully packaging up ready for its new home.
HAM work with a talented team of ceramic specialists to craft the whiteware, screen print the Rabbits, hand decorate the mug and fire and polish the final design.
HAM is the brainchild of artist and illustrator Joanna Ham who gained a BFA Fine Art with a specialism in anatomy from Oxford University's Ruskin School of Art. She formed her eponymous studio in 2011. Jo’s work seeks to celebrate the everyday. She has always been fascinated by popular culture and uses Rabbit to shine a light on life’s simple pleasures - in particular how we interact with one another through work and play. The resulting social commentary creates HAM's happy world, where our daily rituals, likes and hobbies are immortalised in print for all to enjoy.
