In Cantonese, 'Dim Sum' is often referred to as 'Yum Cha' which means to drink tea. What could be closer to a British girl's heart?
My design features a variety of the small, steamed or fried dishes which can be found at a dim sum (yum cha) meal. The crockery inspired me to create a crackle glaze texture background. The whole arrangement is held together by a flower and leaf motif. Please click on the detail images and mock-ups to get a true representation.

Thanks Lisa. I loved creating the crackle glaze (I used to make a lot of ceramics in past life) and I'm sure that texture is going to pop up in another design one day. I love your tiles idea!
Just noticed the crackle glaze on this (thanks to other's remarks!) and it is fantastic! Imagine doing a series of ceramic tile - inspired designs with a crackle glaze - how cool that would be!
Thank you Julie for your thoughtful comments. x
The detail view is so beautiful with the veins on the leaves and crackle background. I like the elements you have chosen, lovely design!
Thank you so much Boo!
Love this design Ceri! Great to see that crackle glaze close up... in fact all the details are a delight :)
Thank you so much Tara!
Wow, gorgeous! The mock ups are wonderful! Your design is lovely!
Thank you Amy. So many lovely designs this week!
Ceri, this is fab!!!! Great job!
Thank you Jan (hootenannit) for your very kind comments!
Love the whole gorgeous collection, especially this and the Yum Cha: Leaves! The crackle background tie-in is genius - in fact, one of the crackles by itself would make a lovely tea tablecloth, with dainty serviettes featuring each of these leaf-circled illustrations... and maybe serve dim sum?
I agree, Ceri...the entries this week are fantastic! It's fun to see how different they all are with the same subject and color palette. I'm just amazed. Yours is fabulous!
Thank you so much Shelly. I have to say I have been blown away by the Dim Sum entries. It is quite humbling to see so much amazing talent gathered in one place.
Love it and all the coordinates too! The crackle glaze is brilliant!
Thank you Paula! Glad you like the crackle. It was tricky to make it repeat seamlessly!
Super design, really good, awesome crackle!!!
