I found these lovely plates at the thrift shop recently. You have to go often, since they get "new" old stuff regularly. Seeing them all in a stack makes me want to get to work cutting them up!

I especially love this rich golden yellow/brown. When I'm cutting them for my mosaics, this golden glaze reminds me of caramel.

I don't usually work in black and white, but this floral and paisley pattern is so interesting, perhaps I'll make an exception!

These tiny blue flowers are so sweet!

The colors and patterns on these, you might say, rather ordinary dishes, are very inspiring: they whisper ideas to me, suggest ways they could be used and what they'd go perfectly with. And in the end, I always listen!


  1. These are great plates...I can't wait to see how you use them in your art! I just love have a very cool style:)
