Recently an interesting email dropped into my inbox – I’m not always able to fulfill requests I get. This time I was able to! I was asked to provide a set of dinner plates and tea plates for a photo shoot. I usually style all the photos I take myself so it’s really an opportunity to see what other people do with my work. It’s nice in a way just to be able to sit back and look at the photos!
It’s been a while since I last talked shop with all these projects going on! Lately I’ve been making a lot of plates, products seem to go in cycles during the seasons and I think in spring people really start to think about their summer entertaining.
Plates are a big part of eating and the style and colour of a dish can really spark off a meal. Just think about the difference between an office canteen and a Michelin starred restaurant! I like to think that the kinds of plates I produce have a kind of rustic charm to them for a cozy look.
