At first glance, the antique plate art of Caroline Slotte, an artist based in Helsinki, Finland, simply looks like an elaborate layering of porcelain for a special occasion. Yet upon closer inspection, it becomes abundantly clear that there is much more going on when it comes to the traditional imagery. There is a sense of depth not normally associated with them and that is due to the fact that the scenes have been carved out.

Working with secondhand objects, Slotte brings a new dimension to antique plate art. As written in her statement, "Demonstrating an engaged sensitivity towards the associations, memories and narratives inherent in the objects, SlotteĀ“s intricate physical interventions allows us to see things we would otherwise not have seen."
