Dinner plates, white stoneware, 27 cm diameter
Precious Things: Heirloom nose plates is a custom set of dinner plates for a specific family of four. Each plate’s form is unique because it is derived from the profile of a family member’s nose. Just as a facial feature can be passed down through the generations, it is my hope that these dinner plates can assume a similar longevity.
Precious Things: Heirloom nose plates are created using a traditional machine called a Jigger Jolly. The negative of the nose’s profile is attached to the machine and its rotation creates the plate’s surface.
