This piece is a little collage of special memories I've put together from a trip I took almost 10 years ago, to Dubai and Morocco.
It combines my favourite plate, a handmade Turkish ceramic beauty purchased in Dubai, and the colours from the Jardin Marjorelle (Marjorelle gardens) in Morocco, which I was ecstatic at seeing.
I love the plate and the garden as they are in my favourite ever colour- ultramarine blue- or in the case of the Marjorelle Garden, Marjorelle Blue.
Jacques Marjorelle was an artist who created the garden, and painted it in his blue, of which ultramarine blue is the closest to it, I highly recommend googling these gardens!
Now as to the plate, where is it you ask? Well I reinterpreted it as the vase! Turkish ceramics are stunning. I liked the idea of a vase for this piece though, so incorporated the colours and patterns from the plate into this vase.
Ultramarine and Marjorelle blue, plus my plate, and the memories of the Marjorelle gardens, will forever remind me of the awesome travels I got to have through some middle Eastern countries. I had been captivated by these countries from about 10 years old, when I first read a novel set in the middles East. It took awhile, but when I did get to go there, it was almost magical, and so different than my own Australian culture.
So here is a collection of some of my favourite things, that hold a special place in my heart from my travels. I hope you enjoy!
