Milton Keynes Arts Centre plate fundraiser March 2019

Plate with snake, mushrooms and teardrops, Glazed earthenware, 30x30x9cm, 2019

The work came from looking at a mixture of sources, a snake from a Bernard Palissy ceramic, mushrooms lifted from a William Nicholson painting and the teardrops, a familiar symbol, evoking human tears, sweat, rain fall, water as conductor and the damp conditions of growing fungi.

Funds raised from the sale of works, generously donated by all participating artists, are used to deliver Milton Keynes Arts Centre’s free, year round outreach programme with local schools and families, targeting those with little or no access to the arts.
