Companion Plates

2020 - 2021

In this series of pots, vessel form merges with vegetable silhouette. The altered rims are drawn primarily from photographs of lettuce plants that I grew during the summer of 2020. The surface decoration highlights a plant that makes a beneficial neighbor to lettuce in the garden, a practice in sustainable agriculture known as companion planting. Creating a  rotation of beds in the garden and scheduling the seeding of new plants is one of the hidden labors of growing food. These plates capture one of the more significant considerations I make when planning my garden.
