Recently I was contacted by a very lovely lady and commissioned to create a piece of art based on the recycled ceramic plate pendants I make.
She loved all of the different colours and patterns of the plates used in the jewellery items, and wanted a piece of art to frame capturing segments of the plates.
It was a great brief to work on and I was able to source a variety of found plates to create the finished piece of art (picture above). What a great excuse to go shopping in flea-markets and second-hand shops!
This detail shows some of the plates used in the piece - including retro plates by Ridgway, Royal Doulton and British Anchor, and also a vintage Mason's plate. The end result is a fabulous montage of pattern and colour - and who would have thought these were all once plates that were discarded and just left to gather dust.
This is the finished piece framed and hung on a very fitting coloured wall.
