Exploding Plate

Adam Knoche


This plate is made fromĀ pulverized dry basalt clay.

Part of Adam Knoche’s first collection of plates. Pulverizing earth toned clay bodies and ram-pressing them into shape. The surface is tooled with handmade wooden ribs to create opportunities for the clay to fracture, crack and respond to the stress and tension of the heat of the firing. The plate is fired in oxidation to 1232Ā°C. Each plate has its own primitive qualities and embodies the bare essentials of life and artistic expression.
