Silver plate service has been an inspiration for me in my artwork for many years. This new series of work simply titled HOMAGE is a zoomed in look at the amazing patterns that were created to embellish this metalware that we are all very familiar with. Because the silver plate is no longer popular, the patterns will eventually be lost. No polishing required to maintain their sparkle! Sharon Simmers, 2013
