Celebration of the Oyster
The Clay College in Millville is currently showing an exhibit called "Celebration of the Oyster." My oyster plate is shown on display here.
The centerpiece of the show is a collection of antique oyster plates, but there are several outstanding and creative representations of the oyster plate by local artisans as well.
My plate is a stylized version of oyster shells and pearls. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out. I fully expected the glazing process to be a disappointment, but I was pleased to see that the colors remained separate since this was my first attempt using masking techniques. It's not perfect, but I like it.
