HAYWARD GALLERY COMMEMORATIVE PLATES // Alice Mara decorates ceramic surfaces using a new digital printing process. Approaching ceramic surface design from a different prospective she treats the plate as a canvas. Mara’s surreal, colourful and contemporary plates are inspired by printmakers and photographers from the pop-art era. Using the Hayward Gallery as a backdrop she has made up stories around the building, creating an unreal environment with strange people walking around it.

The commemorative plates ( 27cm square) have been commissioned by the Hayward Gallery Shop to co-inside with  ‘Psycho Buildings’, an exhibition that commemorates the 40th anniversary of the Hayward Gallery.

The plates are available at Southbank Centre Shop

    mmm...I've always like objects that "winks" to other objects. This remind to the plates that my grandma used to hung on the wall
