British artist and designer Jamie Julien Brown has turned his hand to diverse materials and locations for his eye-poppingly colourful works, from magazine covers to shop exteriors – even painting an entire abandoned house bright green for his work 'Monopoly House'.

Meat and Two Veg plate, Jamie Julien Brown, for Motherland

The designs commissioned by Motherland for its shop are a playful take on classic grub, entitled British Food, Deconstructed, the three ceramic plates feature a Memphis-inspired visual deconstruction of fish & chips, meat and two veg and cooked breakfast.

In keeping with the distinctly British feel of the project, the plates have been manufactured and screen-printed at a family run factory in Stoke-on-Trent.
