Source material with greenware plate and under glaze.

I had a bit of a gap between school and a meeting about being made redundant so I stayed at school and used the classroom as a studio for an hour or so. I worked on a commemorative plate, channelling Grayson Perry and Gavin Turk with a plate to commemorate my ten years at Gisleham. I used some under glaze on a buff school clay with a couple of layers of blue slip on. I used a few pictures from a google search around commemorative plates in general including a well cheesy one of the queen mum. I based the self portrait on a picture of Nelson (local lad) and this has sent the face a bit off kilter so I might have to rework that a bit.
