Back in 2010 I was commissioned by some friends to produce a commemorative plate for the birth of their first child, Arlo. You can take a look here.
2011 saw the arrival of their second child, Joseph, and I was honoured to be asked to make a plate for him. With his initials being JFK, it was impossible not to reference John F Kennedy. I replicated the style of Arlo's plate and went with Cadillacs, The White House and an olive wreath, but decided against a gun sight on his photo. Got to keep it classy!
I loved working on this plate (and the earlier one). It's not often that I'm commissioned to do pieces (ok, it's never happened before or since) but I really like the process. It suits me to have a brief to work to (and a deadline to meet!).
