Green Sprigged Platter
This platter was created in 2003 for my first solo show — Setting the Stage, at Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago. It is white stoneware, fired in reduction to cone 10 in a gas kiln. It was wheelthrown. The center of the platter contains dozens of individual clay button spriggs that were applied one at a time.
It appeared in the May 2004 issue of Ceramics Monthy when I was selected as one of their Emerging Artists of 2004. It also appears in the new book "500 Plates and Chargers" produced by Lark Books. The platter remains a personal favorite and a part of my private collection. Photo by Guy Nicol.
