Christmas Plate 2015
A deeply traditional Father Christmas is depicted by artist Sue Scullard on this festive plate from Dunoon. Wrapped in a red robe trimmed with ermine, he is placing the final star atop an enchantingly decorated Christmas tree. On the snow-covered ground beside him lies his sack, with the words Christmas 2015 inscribed on it. Behind him is a row of Nordic-looking gingerbread-style traditional houses and a snowman, complete with hat and scarf. A deep blue sky filled with twinkling stars completes the scene. Around the edge of the plate is a pattern of festive garlands, each framing a red-breasted Robin. The border is interspersed with miniature trees and stars. This plate is the perfect Christmas souvenir, to be treasured over the years.
Sue Scullard studied wood engraving at the Royal College of Art. She works as a freelance illustrator on a wide range of projects, and has demonstrated her skill as a wood engraver to the public at exhibitions around the country.
