“Taking content from the sketchbook drawings made during my residency in the Nancy Fairfax studio, March 2018, this lino block print is part of a series of five, refering to Margaret Olley’s much beloved collection of ceramics and Willow Pattern dining china. Conceptually these small prints draw on the practice of dinnerware designers and manufacturers e.g. Wedgewood, Spode and Limoges, by reconfiguring the drawings using a ‘scene’ or ‘still life’ from the sketchbook for each plate’s centre, and a surrounding border incorporating floral motifs drawn from within the central ‘motif’. ~ Christine Druitt Preston 2022.
