This is a 6 inch wide plate made out of red clay and glazed with light blue glaze. You may be noticing the blatant lack of any design or... love put into this plate and there is a very simple explanation. I hate plates. I hate making them and I especially hate footing them and by the time I'm done I just want to put them on the cart and never look at them again. So yes this plate is just blue. Its simplicity expresses my frustration in plates. I glazed it as sort of a test because I was curious to see how the red clay and blue glaze would look together and since plates are dumb I didn't care if it didn't turn out very well but it's not completely awful. The splattering where you can see the red clay is like my frustration bubbling under the surface. The art element it displays is simplicity and clarity. There is nothing confusing that needs pondering when it comes to this plate. It hides nothing. It isn't a grand metaphor. It has no facade. It's just a blue plate.
