The ceramic blog, A plate a day is calling for submissions for it’s 300th plate.

Bowls and platters are allowed. So these are the bowls, platters and plates that I am going to submit.

This is ‘Requiem for a tree’  a shallow bowl made in response to the accelerated destruction of the old growth forests here in Tasmania.

    Not an art person, but I have to ask because I noticed it. Are the rough edges whenever you represent nature supposed to symbolize something? It just seems to me (again, don’t know much about art) that the rough edges give it a more wild, untamed look, but yet there are still boundaries… just as in nature, you will find boundaries but not LINES usually.

    When is your next show?

    @ Mrs C I hadn’t really thought too deeply about it. I just liked the edges that way.I work very intuitively I never really know where I am going to end up when I make something. I am generally responding emotionally to an issue I care about, like the environmental destruction here in Tassie. By expressing those emotions in the clay I am able to deal with them better. It is similar to how writing helps me,when I write here I am getting the sadness out of my head so that I don’t suffocate. The clay does the same for me.

    They are all so beautiful Kim. Good luck, although
    I don’t really think you need it your talent is so great.

    Beautiful! I especially love that first plate because I can imagine something sweet being presented on it 🙂

    Some of those are fabulous individual pieces, and the side plate design would sell for an absolute fortune in a set in any designer store in Dublin or Amsterdam.

    I love them all. Last week I was telling my husband about the baby albatrosses and we had a whole discussion about the plastics and the waste.

  • warriorwitch December 13, 2009, 11:23 pm

    are the plates ever for sale?

    Those baby albatross photos are the saddest thing I’ve seen in a very long while. I have always been rabid about littering. My daughter teases me that she would rather I found out she murdered someone than have someone report that she threw chewed gum on the ground. (It must be wrapped in paper and disposed of properly in a trash recepticle like all other trash.)

    Anyway, she is an animal lover and I plan to show her those poor baby chicks. That will probably be worth an hour of litter lectures.

    Your platters are so lovely. I especially love the black and red one. The albatross platter is beautiful as well but would make me very sad every time I saw it.
