cakes and porcelain
On Thursday I backed some tiny cupcakes for a girl's morning tea which included a 2 year old. She loved them, in fact started climbing on chairs to get at more.
As I laid these out on a dish I bought at Chatuchak market in Bangkok many years ago I thought about the various pieces of porcelain I'd collected and kept with me over the last 15 years or so which have recently become features in my paintings.
Then on Friday, my sister sent me a lovely porcelain dish with delicate patterns all over it so I thought I should photograph a little collection.
You will recognise the ginger jar - this is one of several, and the plate from my sister is in the foreground.
Have a lovely weekend all.
