We have evolved our research into the interplay between transferware plates and paintings from the
one-of-a-kind Altered Perspectives into our series of limited edition ceramics called Altered Histories.
Altered Histories take the idea of combining textiles and ceramics further, casting the canvas directly
into the ceramic and producing a tactile surface of applied oil paintings on the plates.
We derive inspiration for the blue and white transfers from our personal collection
of antique Dutch plates and from a desire to revive the beautiful, historic designs
of the Dutch ceramics industry, which has sadly died out in the last quarter of the 20th C.
