CAT TEA Teapot 6 cup, large size, 48oz, Alice Lid, Designed and modelled in England by the Paul Cardew Design Studio.
Paul Cardew was encouraged to explore his talents as a child by Michael Cardew, his great uncle and renowned ceramic designer, or when he later attended the art school at the prestigious Loughborough University in the heart of England. Paul first began teaching art part-time at Exeter University where he had time to develop his skills. Paul Cardew's was asked to design ceramic brooches for Harrods Department store in London and traditional dinnerware brands like Portmeirion, Royal Doulton, Lilliput Lane, Harmony Kingdom- to name but a few. But his greatest claim was an association with The Walt Disney Company, with over one hundred designs perfected during a six year period. Launching Paul on to the world's stage. Roy Disney selected Paul Cardew as one of only a few artists worldwide to design special products for Disney's Millennium reproduction of the Fantasia Cartoon. Paul was invited to attend the movies premier at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Many of Paul Cardew old designs are now antiques and are featured in auctions wherever ceramic art and teapots turn up. Today Paul Cardew continues to create even more interesting designs appealing to the ever changing tastes of the discerning consumer.

In the vast open space of the Smock Alley Theatre, four people sit on a bench under three arched windows. There’s a slightly nervous tension – they’ve only just started rehearsals for Oscar Wilde’s iconic production The Importance of Being Earnest. Though opening night seems distant at the time of the interview, the cast and their director, Kate Canning, have a clear vision in mind. In the play, two men masquerade their real lives to seem more interesting – Jack Worthing (James Murphy) makes up a devious younger brother called Earnest so that he can visit Gwendolen Fairfax (Clodagh Mooney Duggan), while his friend Algernon... “It’s set in the 1890s in London. It’s a big, comic, wonderful, mad feast of fun,” Kate says. Clodagh Mooney Duggan, who takes on the role of Gwendolen, explains: “We see her first when she’s trying to make a proposal happen. She’s a really fun character to play – she’s very complex and very much of her time. She puts a lot of stake on society and how she’s viewed. Cecily Cardew, the youngest character in the play, is Jack’s ward and in the words of the actress portraying her is "very girlish, innocent and naïve, but at the same time she has a very wicked quality to her. "She likes excitement and that’s why she’s drawn to Algernon, who comes down as Earnest. She’s very excited to meet him and orchestrates a proposal for herself. So it’s fun when the two girls meet each other. Stuff goes down,” says Aislinn O'Byrne. Kevin Shackleton plays Algernon and says his character is “more of a man of leisure, who likes to go out, drink and meet girls. He thinks people who haven’t seen the play will know lines that Algernon says in it. “Wilde gave him some brilliant classic lines: ‘All women become like their mothers, that’s their tragedy. "It’s such a delight to say those lines, but there’s also a lot of responsibility to give them justice as well,” he smiles. With opening night for this production now just hours away, the cast and director are hoping The Importance of Being Earnest makes as much of an impact in Dublin as it did when it first premiered in London. On its opening night in February 1895, the playwright got wind of the fact that his lover’s father, the Marquess of Queensberry, was planning to throw a bouquet of rotten vegetables at him at the curtain call. Wilde got policemen to prohibit the Marquess from entering the theatre, which began Wilde’s libel suit against the Marquess, resulting in a bitter court battle and Wilde’s ultimate downward spiral. Wilde was convicted of ‘gross indecency’ – being a gay man was illegal at the time – and spent several years in jail, dying impoverished. However, the flamboyant Wilde and his work had been cemented in the public imagination, and the iconic name brings with it the pressure to have a great production. So how is Kate planning to make it her own. “Having been given the play to direct, the original vision must come from that person. I ask myself the question: what is the play and what does it mean to people. Even though it’s by an Irish writer, and we’re all very proud of him, it’s very much considered a London play. “What I love about it is that I’d often be directing plays that people wouldn’t be very familiar with. So one of the advantages we have is that everyone knows this play. People who generally aren’t into the theatre love it. “What can I do to make it new. It’s comedy so you have to make sure you have the scaffolding to support that comedy. We’re lucky enough to be performing it in Smock Alley, so we have a beautiful thrust stage to put it on. We’re hoping to transform the theatre into a garden and have it be very atmospheric, with an Alice in Wonderland feeling when you come in to... Kevin adds: “I think when the writing is so good, you just have to respect that. People could come in and listen to us reading the script and it would still be hilarious – you don’t have to do anything over the top with it to make it funnier. As soon as you respect the script, it’ll come through. That’s why it’s so much fun to play. Source: utv.ie
