Beat Up Creations by Angela Rossi

Thursday, 29 November 2012

Angela Rossi, founder of LA-based brand Beat Up Creations, specialises in antique plates altered with a contemporary twist.

The self-taught artist updates vintage china with modern pop culture icons and human-animal hybrids, who each strike a pose in the centre of the plate, surrounded by decorated edges.

Rossi uses transfers and heat-sealing to secure the images on the plates, which can then be used for serving or display. She recommends washing the china by hand to preserve the antique plate.
