This site is dedicated to Kenneth Townsend and is about his life and work.
The site contains images of nearly all of Ken's work that still exists. Much of it was produced for commercial use but this site also contains personal works that were never intended for mass production.
Ken's work still throws up a few surprises now and then, mostly variations of his menagerie series and these are added to this site when they come to light.
We hope you enjoy this site and Ken's work and if you do have a piece of Ken's work not found on this site please let us know.
A whole new range of greetings cards, using original designs as created by Ken! Soon are available from the Design Heritage web site.
The first series of cards to be available are London Scenes I & II, a range of six cards based on Ken's designs for his tiles and the commissions for the Chance Glass trays. Also available are his Farmyard series. New for early 2013 will be his Aquatic, Woodland and Zoo ranges.
Following this will be a further set Menagerie cards taken from his tile designs.
Any of the cards can be purchased individually, although postage will have to apply and of course it will be cheaper to post packs. There is also a discount when buying complete packs.
