Pattern Language

As I head into a busy week (aren't we all?) here's a couple of pictures of platters by my friend Mary Lance. Mary also works in fiber, so we get to share techniques and ideas in that media as well. What I love about this  new work of hers is the exuberance of pattern. 

I think the cross-referencing of ideas from textile to clay is really interesting- I could see these as the inspiration for work in fabric, too.
