Fine China Pendant


A dear friend of over twenty years came to me with a special request. She had a china dish that held fond memories of her childhood. Her father, in his nineties, still eats off these dishes every day. The one she handed me had a small crack. She asked me to take a portion of it and make it into a pendant. After contemplating this project, I noticed one small section of the plate had the design of a vase. I defined this section with the playfulness of a Matisse painting, using enameled flowers stemming into a vase held by a bezel. The materials consisted of a fragment of Pope Grosser China, pattern Pinafore, sterling and fine silver and hand-fired enamels.
