Provencal dinnerware

A wonderfully talented artist and fellow blogger, Lynne Rutter of San Francisco, recently illustrated a charming set of Provencal designs for Williams-Sonoma's latest dinnerware collection.

The melamine dinnerware is called Marseilles.
Perfect for summer or to add a refined dash of color to the kitchen.

Here are the 11" dinner plates,
 the cereal bowl,
 the serving bowl,
 and the piece de resistance, the Sunflower salad plate.

 Stop by Lynne's blog, The Ornamentalist, or check out her beautiful work at her "Gallery of Fabulousness" website, Lynne

Lynne creates fabulous fine art murals and is an expert on hand painted architectural ornament. She offers classes in her San Francisco atelier and will be teaching Painterly Cloud Ceilings at the upcoming IDAL (International Decorative Artisans League) convention in Portland, Oregon.
Congratulations, Lynne!
