Michael Craig-Martin RA has created this set of Violin Plates by adapting the design he was invited to create for Glyndebourne's 2013 programme.
"I wanted to do something more than just reproduce one of my images on a plate. The surface area of a plate is comparatively small so I started thinking of making an image larger than the plate, showing only a fragment. Playing with this idea, I suddenly realized that because of its length and the fact it tapers towards the top, I could accommodate the entire image of the violin on a graduated sequence of 3 plates. It was an extraordinary coincidence it fit so perfectly.
I am happy that the plates can be used to eat from in an ordinary way, displayed on a table or a wall to re-assemble the violin, placed in an orderly stack from large to small, be used singly or simply mixed up in a group."
