Plates on a path

This is an image from a project I did a couple of years ago with artist, Lonnie Graham. I made 200 bowls, which I packed up and took with me to conference in California at the Copia Institute. The bowls were given to the participants with 5 tastes in each - salty, sweet, piquant, sour and bitter. Before the panel spoke, Lonnie and I wandered out into Napa and found this location.

It was dawn, we sang. Later, we ate. What's possible? How can we reimagine how we live? So many possibilites....

This is my favorite picture of your work, Mary Anne. I have a postcard of it displayed with your dishes and everyone notices it and thinks it wonderful. I think it captures something essential about your playful yet grounded work. Thanks for telling the story behind the picture!
