Ceramic Plates/ Wall Display

Enjoy the variety of colors and textures in the plate display on view in the dining area at the Venetian Italian Eatery curated by Pat Halle, a ceramic artist from Baltimore. Pat, herself a local potter for over 40 years, collected handmade ceramic plates from a diverse and talented community of clay artists. 

The collection consists of 27 handmade plates, representing the work of 17 contemporary ceramic artists working in studios in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia and New York. These artists work solo, in group studios and within a variety of networks to continue a long vibrant tradition of functional handmade crafts.

Several plates that are not on the wall will be used to display delicious foods.  

Each plate is food-safe.

Contact information for the artists is available upon request.
