I love the wide range of eclectic patterns in Cynthia's work. These small dishes (2"-3" diameter) vary in colour and are perfect for displaying jewellery or serving dipping oils and spices. The dishes are made from a fine translucent porcelain, that lets light shine through when held up to a lamp. The pigmented slip is applied through a needle-like tool in a precise and clean pattern which requires both skill, time, and years of practice!

This print was made as part of a project illustrating the seven deadly sins. Apart from the subtle 'sloth' embroidered on her shirt, and the alarm clock showing 3:15pm giving her away, nobody would be the wiser she was committing a sin. This is just a woman resting peacefully. An original illustration, etched onto a zinc copper plate, then printed onto heavyweight stonehenge printmaking paper. Each print is signed and dated, and this print is of a limited edition of just 5.
