Jamie Chew is transforming the modern dining table with her unique take on traditional Chinese porcelain. Influenced by her Malaysian homeland, Chew has lived in Paris, Beijing, Geneva and Shanghai, fueling her inspiration for her ‘east meets west’ Limoges porcelain.

Her ‘tradition with a twist’ cultural patterns come in sublime shades of red, green, blue, brown, pink and lavender. Each plate, cup and saucer is handcrafted, with all designs applied by hand. Each of the five patterns features a dinner plate, salad plate, bread and butter plate, teacup and saucer or you can purchase a five place setting. From the traditional Arabesque pattern, available in earthy Arabian Spice, red Hibiscus or Bluemarine, the bold floral and circular Lotus Pavillion pattern in turquoise or tangerine, to the playful Shangrila pattern with a butterfly, lotus flowers, fish or toad in apple green or ecru, Chew’s designs incorporate influences from India, Arab and Egyptian cultures.

J. Chew Porcelain encourages us to have a swish dinner party, even if our version of cooking entails our favorite take out!
