The Homemaker Plate – for Object Wiki

I photographed a mass produced ceramic dinner plate in my possession which is from the the design classic series “The Homemaker” for the Object Wiki, a project from the Science Museum, which aims to collate information from the public on some of the objects from their collections.

I like the quirky design for being bold enough to champion household objects on a dish, for the seemingly impossible shape of one or two of the designs depicted, and above all for the cheerful optimism of 1960′s modernism. I didn’t even know it was designed by Enid Seeney before reading the Object Wiki entry, but this led me to explore the background to the plate on the C 20 th site which is also home to theatre memorabilia.
