Week One – Plate One – “Votes for Women” – Hand painted plate by Ma’at Silk.

Here is my first commissioned plate. I’ve nicknamed it “Votes for Women” because of the colours, white, purple and green, which as I am sure you all know where the colours of the British Suffragette movement (the WSPU union in particular). This plate has floral motifs and abstract leaf type shapes. It took me about two and a half hours to paint and had two separate drying stages, plus a baking session in the oven – which makes it microwave safe, however it’s not officially food safe but as it’s only going to be used as a decorative plate that does not matter.

The photos were taken quickly in my studio and so are not the highest quality, but give a good idea of what they look like. That’s one down and 11 more plates to go!

Have a creative day!
