For the Harvest Table: Splatter-Painted Plates from a Pittsburgh Artisan

November 17, 2017

Recently in our in-box: ceramics made by potter Francis DeFabo in his home studio in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. “The makers movement here in Pittsburgh is booming,” he wrote to us; we like, in particular, his charmingly splattered plates, which remind us of Justine’s equally charming splatter-painted floors in plate form, perfect for the Thanksgiving table and beyond.

(The kitchen photography is by Lexi Ribar who, DeFabo says, “headed out into my garden and returned with arms full of flowers, foliage, and veggies, then scoured my pantry for extras props, including a bottle of homemade wine,” for lush, harvest-inspired photographs.)

Here’s a look.
