HOMAGE TO MONTELUPO: WORK IN PROGRESS

There are lots of ideas that I don't have time to develop.  One was a homage to the maiolica of Montelupo, the Tuscan town which produced a lot of jolly plates with images from the Commedia del'Arte. They used large areas of yellow in the sky, that delicious egg-yolk yellow that the potters made from the deadly antinomiate of lead. The plates are admittedly crude, but that appeals to me, and I thought I might adapt them to modern life a few years ago, with this sketch for a plate.
