Could there be anything more appealing than a pretty, if somewhat kitsch, antique plate made all the more desirable by the careful placement of a zombie portrait?
Well, can there?
I happen to think not. Well not much, surely, can compete?
Look at the close up of the serving platter…
I am madly in love with the idea of serving cake to the vicar on such a platter, and the altered portrait picture slowly being revealed with each slice. I am also supposing the vicar wouldn’t come back to tea at my house.
I suppose it might not be to all tastes, but this collection is very much my cup of tea. I love art and fashion which looks to be traditional and twee but, on closer inspection, turns out to be vintage with a definite twist in the tale.
Beat Up Creations is an absolutely brilliant shop which I have just discovered, and already I covet many of their pieces. Many. 🙂
It’s run by a lady called Angela, who rescues “unloved, thrown-out and abandoned” pieces which she transforms into delightfully quirky portrait plates.
I really like the idea of recycling orphan pieces of crockery, pottery and porcelain and having them re-made into items that new owners will love.
I’m especially fond of the vintage portrait series, as you can tell, but Beat Up Creations also create mad sculptures using broken & forgotten ornaments, art prints and fantasy terrariums.
The entire shop is well worth exploring. J’adore!
