More photos for personal theme.

I was at college last weekend and have shown my work to my tutor. She is really happy with my personal theme but said I needed to show more examples before settling on my area of focus which will be pottery by J&G Meakin.
We have been cleaning today and when washing some of the plates I have on display in the house I decided to photograph them before doing some artwork based on them.

This plate is by Alfred Meakin and I just love the design - I would love to use that as a quilt design.

This photo is a closeup of a jug made by Wade. What I loved was the way the coloured stars have a hexagon as their centre. Again, more quilt inspiration here.

And how could I not include one of the most iconic 1960s pottery designs, Homemaker. This is one of my favourites.

I am hoping to use some of these designs as inspiration for artwork and even quilt samples.
I do have four samples completed that I have not shown yet so hope to get them photographed soon.

  1. I can really see that Meakin plate translating to a quilt design, gorgeous. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do with it. I'm sorry I don't like Homemaker, am I the only person in the country that doesn't?!!
