The luncheon-sized plate can easily be as nomadic as a coveted coffee mug: not always needing to land on a table surface to be used. Since it is the type of plate that is often gripped in a hand or rested in a lap, it is important to be as thoughtful as it is beautiful and useful.
The plate I chose for the exhibition is intended for daily use. The textured rim gives clues to the history and tactility of porcelain while the decorated center nods to textile design and floral motifs.
