It's always fun for me to do commissioned work--usually involving full place settings for someone's treasured dining possibilities. And so to speak, everyone brings something new to the table for this task. Some want very specific designs that they have admired on my website and others say--whatever you want to do. Recently I have been getting some requests for minimal. Perhaps it is the state of the world and life being so complicated--people want to breathe a little, feel airy, light and unfettered. SO I had fun creating a whole line of work that was minimal in design and color- Sometimes I find that it is harder for me to leave a plate with just one little icon on it but rather will take to covering the whole thing in a frenzy. This may be speaking to my hoarding and collecting sensibilities--it is NEVER enough I say!  so it was with a very zen mind and spirit that I took to the clay in a spare way..and I really enjoyed it too.
Inspired by this and also the raw graphic nature of vintage dutch ceramics--I am introducing this simpleline...and am calling it it?

reduce the clutter
soothe the soul 
bold and
striking and
lazy susans
