The ageing process can be brutal but also may give us an added value to the final stage of life in any form.I´m fascinated about the dying process of living nature. Growing up in Venezuela, surrounded by exuberant plants and my dad´s orchids all around the house made me an nature lover. Since I discovered my passion for nature, I`ve been obsessed with a particular orchid named Phalaenopsis .Its shapes are just like something out of this world, more evolved, so organic. I decided to grow my own Phalaenopsis, but one day working at my tiny studio in Madrid, I accidentally threw the plant into the floor. After trying desperately to save it, with no success, I saw the opportunity to bring back to life this depressed flower transforming it into an unique piece, taking advantage of this natural canvas ready to be use. The results were Psycho Orchids Dessert Plates Set. I chose the best material and created a collection of prints showing and mixing the before and after results, leaving me willing to go even further on this project.
How Its Made
This is my Psycho Orchids Dessert Plates Set, six ( 6 ) 8″ x 8″ ceramic plates, the designs compliment each other creating a collection. Each artwork transferred is into the plate with a high quality sublimation process where the artwork is permanently infused into the porcelain. The result is a bright, clean, crisp image that will not fade or smudge. The plates are dishwasher and microwave safe. Size: 8″ x 8″
