Plates and chargers can serve as more than just places to put your food - they can be glorious art to show off on a table, sideboard, or dresser. These 500 spectacular pieces range from the utilitarian yet beautifully glazed plate to dramatically decorated work, and theyre crafted from a remarkable variety of materials - including pristine porcelain and bold earthenware. Nick Joerlings stoneware is the perfect canvas for a design: vigorous brush strokes set in wax resist race across its attractive surface. Kelly McKibbens hand-built Going for a Stroll showcases delicately inlaid and silk-screened images. The stunning gallery provides a unique and wide-ranging snapshot of contemporary ceramic arts.
