Michael Craig-Martin was invited to design the programme for the Glyndebourne 2013 season. He decided to accompany the project by creating a limited edition set of plates as part of the series. In 2016, Craig-Martin has worked with Plinth to produce a new color-way for an unlimited edition based on this first – ‘Violin Plates (pink)’. He says:

“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."
Bone china, made and hand decorated with ceramic transfers in Stoke on Trent.

Meet The Designer

We design, make and sell merchandise and limited editions with leading cultural figures – from Turner Prize winners to world-renowned photographers. Since launching in February 2016, Plinth has undertaken projects with The Fourth Plinth (The Mayor of London), Ikon Gallery, Magnum Photos, The Wellcome Collection and artists such as Cornelia Parker, David Shrigley and Richard Deacon. Many of our editions and products are created for the home – a pure wool blanket from Julian Opie, a trio of plates by Michael Craig-Martin – but everything we make is designed with a philosophy in mind. We aim to make it easy for people to incorporate art and design into everyday life, and to participate in the cultural landscape of London with affordable products like mugs, badges, t-shirts, tote bags and more. We’re interested in art and design within the wider context of social, political and cultural events – as direct response, as antidote, autonomous or in dialogue. We believe that art becomes more imperative than ever during times of change and crisis, and we want to encourage as many people as possible to engage with it as something pleasurable and/or cathartic. We’re aware of the barriers, cultural, socio-economic and personal, which make the ‘art world’ feel hard to access for many people, and we’re keen to challenge both its established audience and the status quo. We interrogate the barriers between different spheres of creativity, propelled by the conviction that industries like art, music, film and fashion have far more in common than they do to separate them. ‘Art’, in any of these incarnations, can be enjoyed for its own sake – or as a means by which to understand the world we live in.
