Off the Table!  Plates for the Wall: National Ceramic Exhibition 2016

Juror's Statement

The simple act of moving off the table and onto the wall transforms the plate from a device for offering pleasure in service into an object of mystery and contemplation.  Innovative processes, clever concepts, and masterful interaction with the materials, design, definitions, and boundaries of the plate influenced my selection.
