My Dislike For Condiments

As with the other plates, I enjoy using the functional pottery surface as a canvas for expressing myself as an artist, and any other views or concerns I wish to express.
In this four plate series I share my hatred for condiments with the viewer. On the face of the plate I display the chosen condiment. On the base / bottom of the plate I have my personal feelings and reasons behind my dislike for that particular condiment.

I enjoy making plates. So many artist use the cup or tumbler as a surface for artistic design. The creation of the plate is such a complex and tedious process... I feel it deserves just as much attention as a decorative surface. The plate just like the cup has a bottom, outer wall, and an inside. I love making the viewer turn and flip the plate as they discover the meaning behind the design.
