Plates > I Come with Baggage


Onglaze portrait painting on a second hand ceramic plate based on a family photograph.
Mother as Teenager
Upcycled ceramic with onglaze
26cm x 30cm

The process began with the collection of family photos from my mother and father, and from a shared Facebook site where family members on my mothers' side upload images from previous Polish generations. I have chosen to re-create these images on old plates with onglaze paint in the monochromatic tones of old or faded photographs.
