now on sale in the RITZENHOFF store

RITZENHOFF is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of beverage glasses, glass objects and components.

Innovative designs have become the hallmark of the annual Ritzenhoff Collection, a tabletop fashion trendsetter.

Since 1810, porcelain, ceramics and glass have been our passion. Within these over 200 years of our existence, we have gained greatest expertise and have long since been one of the leading suppliers of tableware products as well as kitchen and home accessories.


These fun new items represent the very first designs by Ian David Marsden for RITZENHOFF. They are part of the Kitchen Farm series.

The kitchen farm is made up of a sweet little sugar bird, a happy-go-lucky salt piggy, a small herb jar with a cute bunny relaxing and smelling the flowers and a large herb jar with a cow holding a piece of chalk, ready to mark the jar contents for you.

The herb jars are made out of finest porcelain china with real wood lids featuring air-tight rubber interior seals. Both the small and large jars are stackable and there is a practical area on each herb jar on which the contents can be hand-written in chalk.
(Each jar comes with a bag of chalk inside.)

The salt piggy is open on one side and comes with a wooden RITZENHOFF salt serving spoon. It is the perfect way to present salt on the kitchen counter or dining room table.

The sugar birdy can be filled through a tight rubber seal at the bottom.
Sugar is poured out of the beak by tilting the bird.

“My kitchen farm design is certainly influenced by happy memories of summer days spent on farms and vineyards, in the South of France, Tuscany, in Switzerland, and other wonderful locations.

Sunny, seemingly endless days, happy animals, the smell of fresh coffee brewing and delicious food being prepared in the kitchen and the delicious aroma of the grass, hay and herbs in the air.”

 - Ian David Marsden


“Mein Kitchen Farm Design ist sicherlich beeinflusst von glücklichen Erinnerungen an wunderbare Sommertage die ich auf Bauernhöfen und Weingütern in Südfrankreich, der Toscana, der Schweiz und anderen wunderbaren Orten geniessen konnte.

Sonnige, scheinbar endlose Tage, glückliche Tiere, der Duft von frischem Kaffee und feinen Speisen der aus dem Küchenfenster über den Hof schwebt und das köstliche Aroma von Gras, Heu und Kräutern die in der Luft allgegenwärtig sind.”

A quick and rough digital cartoon scribble in Photoshop for my Facebook Page.

My Facebook page is HERE by the way, hint hint, if you feel like giving it a “Like” :)

Here is an image of the final result and also a YouTube video of the entire drawing process, uncut.

This sketch was made in under 30 Minutes but for the purpose of the video I sped the action up to around 9 Minutes.

I hope you enjoy it. Cheers!

Café Cardboard Cutout Poster by Ian David Marsden

This was a fun illustration project to be used as a poster and also menu card cover and take-out menu cover for a restaurant / café.
The idea was to make it look like a children’s cardboard cutout game or an arts and crafts project. The artwork was created as 100% vector art in Adobe Illustrator CS5.
