Original felt and ceramic art piece

“In the Long Grass”
Found broken plate combined with hand wet felted wool felt with hand needle felt design and hand stitched details. The design on the felt part is not the same as the original plate design, it has been slightly exaggerated to create a new one-off unique art piece. The edges of the piece have been hand embroidered with gold thread. Long embroidery threads hang from the base to emphase the long grasses. This art piece has been created, designed, and handmade by Alison Hunter.
This wall-mounted art piece is mounted with a D-ring which in turn is secured to the reverse of the felt plate with a timber disc so the makers mark (if marked) is visible.
The original plate was gifted to me and was originally broken and glued together. I tried to break it along the glue line but it was so well glued it broke in different places, I think this adds to it’s story and journey. I like this simple and pretty little plate, the new design is subtle but effective and the two different textures make the piece very inviting.
The concept behind these felt plates is changing the function from broken and damaged plates to wall art pieces preserving old memories while creating new ones.
This is a wholly unique piece. Only one of these has been made.
