Contemplate serie

This collection of decorative wall plates breathes second life into second hand crockery. By combining my art, design and styling background with my fascination of flea-market finds, I create plates that are, quite literally, in your face.

 

Items normally found on the dining room table become storytellers, at home on the walls of your house. These thrift-store rescues speak to the numerous hands they have passed through, the volumes of conversations had around the tables they were once set on. The porcelain and glass vessels carry these stories with them, from one generation to the next. Each plate is the face of a misfit -  incomplete sets of glasses, a single teaspoon, the piles of saucers that lost their cup partners decades ago.

 

Through the Contemplate series, these once valued family heirlooms that were lovingly passed down family lines, only to eventually be left behind on racks of second hand stores, are given a new voice to tell their side of the story.
