Matthew Causey: George Ohr Plaque, 2014, Limited Edition Wall Plaque
9 x 9 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch porcelain wall plaque with onglaze decal. Edition of 10. Plaques are handmade and vary slightly.
This plaque is part of a series of portraits of famous potter's that were produced specifically for CFile. The line work on these pieces is classic Causey, energetic, loose, comical and yet cutting and precise. These portraits get right at the idiosyncrasies of the legendary figures they depict. In the Causey's words: "Those folks looked as unique as the work they made!" Each plaque is hand formed. There are only ten of each plaque, so hurry!
