Guess who inspired this week's plate? Come on, you know....
Dave Davies, of course! The fourth and final show he played in CA (and the only one I wasn't able to go to), was at the San Diego Fair and Dave made friends with Rosie the Elephant. There are pictures of their time together posted on his Facebook page and my heart just melted when I saw them. I had wanted to make a plate about not being afraid to dream big ever since I got back from my Dave Davies groupie experience (if you haven't had the chance to read all about it, you can do so here), and what's bigger than an elephant? It was the perfect combination.
Thanks, Dave, for making a believer out of me. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought any of this would ever happen, but it did. Now I think I'm going to start dreaming about winning the lottery, so wish me luck!
This plate marks the halfway point in my plate-a-week project! I am still having fun with it and have many more ideas so I'm pretty sure it will be smooth sailing until the end.
This plate was made with Duncan® Pure Brilliance® clear glaze, Crackle Glaze, Cover Coats®, and French Dimensions™
