Question: Where did Mariette and Pieter Bouwer find the brass plates and trays hanging against their stoep wall as featured on page 13 of your July 2020 edition? And how did they attach them? – Els Jacobs, Johannesburg
Answer: The plates were bought at antique shops and flea markets over the years; some are heirlooms. Mariette glues metal hooks onto the back of the plates and then attaches them to nails in the wall.
