let's remember with a plate!


Over the last week or so I've been doing lots of painting.  The first piece was a commemorative plate for a street party held last Friday.


There's space around the edge for attendees to sign it with a special pen.  I gave the piece a bit of a 'Rob Ryan' cut away letter style.


At the Bean and Brush we all spent the weekend painting commemorative mugs for the celebratory opening party on Monday afternoon. 


We had a great production line going.


The first pieces are now out of the kiln and looking fab (pics soon!).  I also painted a commemorative plate for the opening of the cafe, which all the staff have now signed.


I have to say, I am liking all this painting!  Next on the list is a couple more examples of commemorative wedding plates, which can be signed by guests, or left unsigned.


This one uses the couples' fingerprints as the base for the lovebirds.  William and didn't have time to bob in on their way home to Anglesey so Graham and Michelle volunteered their fingerprints ;)

How lovely those plates are - I am sure they would be right round if they knew!
