About the work

The title of the work puns ceramic homeware plates with more artistic technical plates, such as photographic negative plates or etching plates.

The minimal abstract landscape format of the three plates resembles a small open book, and the white Shino glaze has reacted to the elements on the reclaimed clay creating a range of browns.

The work has been made and shipped responsibly from an environmentally conscious studio which endeavours to operate by a code of best practice at all times, which is always being improved.

About the artist:

Born 1975, Becky Beasley lives and works in St. Leonards on Sea, East Sussex.

Beasley works in sculpture, installation and photography to express the ambiguities and essential opacity of human experience. Key to her working process is the technique of burrowing: Beasley has a digressive and exploratory practice, focusing on everyday moments of intensity and private revelation.
