I was commissioned to create a family portrait using objects that had been chosen by the parents and their two boys
18th Birthday Present
This tile is made with the flowers Hannah gave me from her grandmother’s garden. She wanted my work to celebrate happy childhood memories on her 18th birthday.
Little girl’s dress from the 1930’s
This was a commision to preserve a pretty dress in a beautiful and evocative way. The dress has great sentimental value to the owner – who is the daughter of the little girl who once wore this dress.
The clay captures the most intricate details, subtly colouring the plaster as it sets. Each clay mould can only be used once making every piece unique. Tiles are then finished and refined by hand.
Tile dimensions are 400mms x 400mms x 15mms. Each piece has a brass mirror plate on the back for hanging.
Special thanks to florist Helen Newman, for the photo.
