£260
Blackberries Platter by Jacqueline Leighton Boyce is an artfully embellished decorative plate made from terracotta and illustrated using slip, with metallic lustres. Nature is a recurrent theme throughout Jacqueline's work and this particular piece pays homage to the blackberries which are best picked in September as summer fades into autumn. Jacqueline was reminded of an old saying whilst making this piece, which warns that you cannot eat blackberries when picked in October, as the devil is in them.
