Talk about your childhood wishes
You can even Eat the Dishes!
But wait. You can’t eat the dishes. At least not ours.
We welcome visitors to enjoy a delicious feast with their eyes. A gallery filled with beautifully decorated ceramic plates and platters of all shapes and sizes, made in studio by gallery members and featured artists.
What kind of dishes do you serve your favourite meals on? In partnership with the 100-mile food movement, we encourage community members not only to support local farmers and food growers, but to also support local makers.
Mealtime can easily be a mindful, pleasurable event and practise, and the time and effort put into the preparation of a meal can also be reflected in what the meal is served on. A special place setting, plate, or food dish can become a treasured part of the family dinner.
Do your tastes lean towards a matched, complete set, collected over time, or more eclectic, with different vessels made by several ceramic artists? Family members, friends and guests often have favourites drinking vessels, bowls, and dishes.
How food is presented, what it is presented on, can easily be paired to compliment the dish served. A big decorated fish platter, serving fresh caught salmon just off the BBQ. Sushi served on a traditional tray. A work-of-art terrine, set centre-stage full of seafood chowder, or hearty beef stew. Or how about a great, big, rustic stoneware bowl, teeming with steaming spaghetti and meatballs?
“Plates and Platters” will be on display in the Potters Place Gallery at the corner of Fifth Street and Cliffe Ave. for the month of March.
Hope to see you there!
We are located in the 5th Street Courtyard at across from the Sid Williams theatre in the heart of downtown Courtenay, BC. Parking is easily accessed at the rear of the building off 6th street.
