Known as an international designer, Anna Weatherly started her career in designing and manufacturing couture fashion and jewelry. Today her reportiore also includes home furnishings, fine china, and printed textiles. In the early 1990's she established a studio in Budapest, Hungary where she trained a group of highly talented painters to create her collection of handpainted porcelain. Handpainted porcelain has a long tradition in Hungary going back almost two centuries. The artisans in Anna Weatherly's studio are trained in the classical painting tradition. Only the best painters are capable of mixing the colors and painting the delicate details of her designs. Each piece is not merely a pretty painted object, but also a work of art. Although her painters are trained in the traditional style, Anna Weatherly's designs are not classical porcelain patterns. Her designs are inspired by the early botanical illustrators and flower painters of the 18th Century Europe such as Redoute, Hooker, and Ehret. Dutch still-life paintings have also been a source of design inspiration.
