Original felt and ceramic art piece

“Watching the Balloon Show”
Found broken saucer plate combined with hand wet felted wool felt with hand needle felt design. 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 people on the lake take a break from their work to watch the hot air balloon show. 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.
This plate was a gift and it had a large crack through the middle of the plate. 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.
Plate maker mark is Wedgwood, Made in England. “Black Lugano”
