Common Knapweed Platter
Jacqueline Leighton Boyce
Common Knapweed Platter by Jacquline Leighton Boyce forms part of a recent body of work inspired by the growth and reproduction of life in English meadows, woodlands and hedgerows during the early summer. This eye-catching platter with a scalloped rim reflects the wild flora which bursts forth and jostles for space in the English countryside and plays host to a myriad of insects from which the birds feast. The piece is formed from red terracotta clay, handbuilt with the use of a press mould, and illustrated with knapweed – a common perennial flower with thistle-like heads that might be spotted in hedgerows throughout the UK during the summer months.
