About Stoke Makes Plates – My Plate by Anjum Malik
My Plate is part of the Stoke Makes Plates exhibition. Commissioned writer, Anjum Malik, has collaborated with ceramic artist, Joanne Mills, to create these works. She has also worked alongside community groups to create poems using the participants’ own words. You can read these poems within the Stoke Makes Plates exhibition and a digital pattern book which will be available to view when the festival opens.
A shared plate between them
for each meal, eating together
my parent, smiling, joking, flirting
he calls her, meri Taari, my star
she replies, mera Chaand, my moon
– Anjum Malik

A Family consists of one or more adults sharing a commitment of caring for their children through birth, adoption, sharing a domestic arrangement.
A Dinner service is a complete set of plates and dishes with the same design used when serving a meal to a group, such as a family.
My Plate is a celebration of my family using the form of ghazal, the ties and rituals of family, the beauty, tradition and uniting of a dinner service around a meal, showcasing social, cultural overlaps.
