Purple Plate Panel

12" x12" Plate Panel
A recent trip to an antique mall turned up this plate along with several others.
I bought them, not knowing quite what I would do with them.  I liked the patterns and the fact that they are old....hmmm, there must be something that I can do with them.  So, over coffee this morning, I started playing with color and texture.
Looking for some glass that would complement this plate.  A lightly textured royal purple and some heavier textured glue chip in a princely gold.  
Corner bevels for accent, a  fine black patina, wash, polish, 
add the hanging chain, and we have a really nice way 
to preserve and share this antique plate.
A family heirloom has been created. 

This piece is available for purchase in my Etsy store in the right sidebar.

Dear Reader

Many thanks for taking the time to comment, it is very important to artists to get positive feedback about work and posts.

Unfortunately, a lot of machines used the comments form for advertising and idiocy, so ALL comments are now moderated.

Thankfully, most of you are human and this is not an issue

Thanks as always,
