These pieces are inspired by my antique plates that are decorated with fragments of broken, richly coloured and patterned crockery. These fragments evidence other ceramic pieces and earlier periods of time. I love their variety of surface and pattern and their interlocking shapes. I also wanted to creatively use scraps of my digitally printed fabric from years of textile experimentation that reflect my ideas for making and the embroideries I have created. These two elements come together to form vivid textural collages that exploit the beautiful contrasts of the fabrics and have the circular form of the plates.
