Small Plates

These little plates are sure to make you stop and enjoy the little moments. Perfect for appetizers, snacks, desserts, jewelry by your bedside, you name it, these small plates are the perfect accent to your daily life. They are mostly between 10 to 15 inches in diameter.

Made by screen-printing Persian-Arabic calligraphy and patterns in iron onto paper and then transferring them onto the piece halfway through the wheel-throwing stage. A process the artist has dubbed "Volumetric Image Transfer". The pots are fired to 2300ºF and cooled without oxygen until 1375º, a process known as "Reduction Cooling", designed to retain the clay's black Iron color from the reduction of oxygen in the iron molecule.

And imprints on its cheeks kisses galore;

Behold the Master Potter of the World—

Such a vase He makes, then breaks it on the floor!"

Plates

These plates are both functional and decorative. The contrasting surfaces of the celadon glazed interior, and the matte clay exterior play beautifully off of one another. Great for anything from rice and stew to bread and cheese.

Please understand that because of the unique process involved in making this work each individual plate may look a little different from one to the next. Each plate is fully functional and has a glazed interior.

Personal stories that people who affected by the Muslim ban executive order, shared on Facebook from January 27 to 31, 2017.

“Today is my turn to tell a story… Yesterday, I dropped off Masoumeh and Sadra (now two months old) at airport for a short trip to Iran. We were excited for our parents to meet Sadra for the first time. Masoumeh’s parents were rejected a visa to visit the US for Sadra’s birthday. Today, I learned an executive action, which could be signed by president Trump any day now, could prevent Masoumeh from returning to the US indefinitely. I have been reading the real life stories of other people every day. But today I suddenly realized it was my turn to tell a story. I hope we realize when it comes to bigotry there are no story of “others”. I hope we realize it before it is your turn.” – A.Sh., January 27 at 12:57am
