Harlequin Plate Series

This was a series of plates commissioned by Noorie Sadarangani of  the company Obataimu.  The designs were for gold and silver decorative plates and the theme was bouffon. After researching bouffon characters, I envisioned the plates to be theatrical and fashion themed. I was inspired by harlequins, clowns, circus and burlesque performers, Tim Walker’s  photography, victorian ornamentation and illustrators Audrey Beardsley and Harry Clarke.
