|No. 1 First design-not my favorite. |
Too much like a bulls-eye.
Of course I can't stop at just playing around with snake images. So I've been seeing if I can make a snake motif that says 'Snake' and also is graceful as a design.
I doubt anyone would want to eat a meal on a snake plate unless you're a zookeeper, or have a pet snake or study snakes for a living.
These are little thumbnails done with a felt pen within pre-drawn circles. So they are pretty rough, just notes and not intended for a finished piece.
In the process, it occurred to me to think about the encapsulation of the snakes in irregular fields. I like the idea, but overall the snakes are too small for the circle area.
|No. 2 Second attempt|
|No. 3 Better design overall-more snaky.|
|No. 4 Tail too long.|
So. Here's the question: Would you want to have a set of snake plates? Would you display them in your house? Would you ever make them? Do you know anyone who has made them or has plates like this?
