Shovel Plate

Joe Pintz


This plate is made of earthenware and glaze.

Part of the “Gardening Tools” project from Joe Pintz. Inspired by the idea that even simple household tools can become dense with meaning through use, the pieces reveal a wealth of information about our culture’s traditions. Each plate straddles the line between functional pottery and ceramic sculpture, while serving as a symbol of self-sufficiency and doing things by hand.
