I came across this artist, Diem Chau in my May/JuneFrankie magazine (Aussie mag) today. Immediately thought of all of you. Check it out - it's really cool. I would definitely put this on my wall.

Yes, I thought that! I thought: "but it's totally inpractical -- you'd have to arrange the food around it!" Then I decided that it was probably just for decoration; probably a plate intended for display and not for eating food from.

my first thought was "no pun intended"
I'm not into plates either or breakables for that matter but that would be neat to store with my other breakable things until I have a place for it.

I think those are plates designed for hanging on a wall, no? In any case, they are very pretty.

My initial thought was that you mispelled "plaits" for the thread title, then I clicked the links. Super cute!! Thanks for sharing your findings. :)

Those would be great wall hangings. Some people hang decorative plates on their walls,

Awesome! I love the pigtail braids!
They're all so cute :)

Although I will admit to have pondered the feasibility of using them ;)

For anyone who was wondering about their use - they are purely decorative, for display purposes only. I went and checked out her website and she includes a tutorial as to how they are done which I thought was very generous since she makes them for sale. There are some in teacups too.

She also does carvings of people out of crayons. Amazing artist. I just love finding things like this that I have never seen before - it's great!
