Stella, who traveled alot, came to my studio with a list of all the places, and we tried to get her 12 plates that came from as close as possible to places she's been.

Prices on sets are negotiable depending on rareity of sediments used, design details and the time they require to execute, and time of year. Winter is the best time to approach me about commissioned work.

The underside, on the foot, sometimes adds specific information.
