Dish(es) now out in paperback..

Shax Riegler- dynamic and multi-talented executive editor at House Beautiful and PHD candidate from Bard College's School of Decorative Studies, published a beautiful book a couple of years ago that chronicles the concept of dishes and collections and the  amazing history of plateware over time and the place that it holds in people's lives and their own concept of "home".
I was thrilled when I was included as one of the contemporary artisan plate makers who are fanning the flames of crafted tableware.

So when Shax told me that the publishers were issuing a new version of the book- a less expensive paperback- I was excited to see it. I just received a copy and it is fabulous! Bright fuchsia, chunky and almost pocket sized. It is a different experience than the more formal coffee table version- but a fun have for the plate obsessed and also a great reference book for the history of designed tableware.
Love "my page" and how it is just large and saturated on the dual facing pages.

so check it out- available in all the book spots- online and in shops.
