There goes your absolute favorite, timeless, one-of-a-kind ceramic dish that has been passed down in your family for ages. What can you do with it now that it can no longer serve it’s function as a dish, but you love it so and still wish to keep it for sentimental reasons? Why not take a page from jewelry artist, Holli Brown’s book?
Based in Austin, Texas, “Holli Brown is inspired by old and forgotten ceramic items; anything that has faded or broken.
Everything she makes in the studio incorporates vintage, found, or re-purposed ceramicware. DISHES!
She loves re-purposing things that have outlived their first purposes. She hopes that her work will be loved by people who imagine the adventures all these plates, vases, cups and bowls had before they reached their hands and that they might take them on some of their own adventures! Holli hand cuts and sands each necklace. Creating a very soft and smooth edge.
Holli hopes that the pieces feel like they have a personal history, secrets and stories from the time before they became yours.” ( Holli Brown: Dish It Out website )
How Creative and Beautiful! with one plate she can create multiple pieces of jewelry that have a style all their own, no one piece can be exactly alike!
