in an update to last weeks 'rice' picnicware posting post, i was asking if this print was by hanna werning. many thanks to kelly hyatt for dropping me a line. kelly regularly works with hanna , and he asked her if she had produced anything for rice. the answer was no - hence this design must be some kind of tribute to hanna's style.
it depends which way you look at it - either a homage to her influence on print fashion, or a rip-off ?
