The Seasons Collection
In 1999 Portmeirion unveiled a brand new design range called The Seasons Collection. This was a very contemporary design inspired by the natural forms and moods of nature. Seasons' Leaves and Seasons' Flowers are calm and peaceful designs on pastel background colours. In 2000, two new designs in this range called Dawn (by Julie Ingham) and Dusk (by Jo Gorman) were launched. Dawn is another pastel based design using images of seed heads, whilst Dusk continues the theme of the Seasons' collection but using rich bold glazes such as 'Midnight' and 'Aubergine' and skeletal forms of leaves. Dusk Impressions, the last of the new designs comprised of an embossed image of leaves on the items, perhaps a nod to Susan's original Totem, Cypher and Jupiter designs.
