Served In Cold Blood

MF-incoldblood-plates

The result of my second assignment from the course Make Art That Sells, by Lilla Rogers.
Description: be inspired by Staffordshire pottery and create plates for the Home Decor market.

When I read about Staffordshire pottery I got interested by the fact they also used to make pottery of talk-of-the-town news, like elections, celebrities, family dramas, murder cases…
With the last one I instantly thought of the book ‘In Cold Blood’, by Truman Capote, and the movie ‘Capote’, played by Philip Seymour Hoffmann.
Since I was fascinated by the murder story, the book, Capote as a person and the actor Seymour Hoffman, I decided to turn these plates into an ode to them.

For this piece I used acrylics and gouache.
The newspaper is the Volkskrant which I photographed at home.
