Jojo Dessine

March 01, 2022

Lotty was delighted to host an open event at the Pink House boutique at the end of January showcasing the work of Josephine Dessine. Usually a regular visitor to Mustique, Josephine found herself marooned at home during the pandemic with her burgeoning career subject to a great deal of uncertainty. To keep herself busy she started to paint ceramics to fuel her creative side and has subsequently created her own business from this unusual start, deciding not to return to her previous career as a costumier in the film business.

Starting from a position of thinking that plain plates should instead be happy, joyful, colourful and most of all fun, Josephine began by painting her ideal dinner guests on the plates - such a clever idea! A list of feminists and literary heroes was drawn up and then sketched before being painted on to plates.

Collaborations and bespoke collections are Josephine's metier and the business is run from her base in Dalston, London.

So, when Josephine was recently able to travel to Mustique, Lotty was keen that everyone should learn about this marvellous talent and together they decided on an exhibition open morning at the Pink House. All the plates shown here were on display, amongst many others and all are original works.
