Nature’s Platter, Bowl and Spoon

Ceramic, 2017, 9"w x 4"h x 2.5"d

I love hand-building with clay. The set features a platter, bowl and spoon with leaf and twig design elements. As in nature, the pieces show a variety of textures and earth-tone colors. From the smooth, flat surface of the platter and the veiny leaf pattern on the outside of the bowl to the twisting twig of the spoon handle, the pieces are different yet complement each other. Glaze outcome can sometimes be a surprise, and these pieces are a great example. Using only two glazes and a touch of underglaze, the results express the organic feel of the pieces.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
