Limited Edition Plates for Spring Restaurant
Cristina’s three plate designs exhibit her signature use of hand carved textures, with this particular commission she explored the use of glaze and colour; a departure from her use of natural colour and finish in her ceramic work. Keeping the main course plate white, she has used delicate shades of pink for the dessert plate and yellow for the petits fours, to chime with the tones of Spring’s interior. The main course features hand carved lined patterns around the curved rim and Cristina has glazed the centre of the plate, leaving the texture unfinished around the edge, creating a dynamic between the two surfaces. The same techniques has been applied with the dessert plate, but the edge has a faceted texture. The petits fours plates have individual carved textures, creating a playful and beautiful display through the series.
