This clay plate is an assembly of several cracked parts to imitate the dryness of the earth. When working with clay in creating different objects what varies mostly is the technique. However the material is always the same. But where does it come from? From what country or what region? These are not usually questions that we ask ourselves when we look down at a beautiful ceramic plate.
This plate is inspired by the natural form that soil takes when it is dried. When presented, the plate questions our relationship to the soil, can also refer to a notion of mapping, because the table – in addition to being the physical support for meals – is also envisioned as a geographical area.
The plate can be divided into several parts which are used for eating.
