This body of work was created in response to Pitzhanger Manor in Ealing, the former residence of Sir John Soane, for the exhibition Portraits in the Making which was a Crafts Council Hothouse project. Using both the history of fine ceramics used by the Soanes, and accumulations of texture and image from my own collections I explored and re-interpreted pattern and image with clay print. Referencing decorative plasterwork from both vintage dinnerware moulds and the PM interior I developed a series of screen printed wall plates and the free standing piece, Rose Bowl. The installation of wall plates takes its configuration from formal dining table settings that would have been used by the Soanes.
