“Althea” is the title of Kenneth Bates’ enameled circular plate pictured on our cover. Mr. Bates says that this “is an attempt to exploit the pollen-bearing stamens of a flower. By purposely involving sgraffito and overglaze lines, a sense of complicity is attained without losing the simplicity so often evident in nature forms.” Colors are ruby red over flax.

Ceramic Mosaic was made by F. Carlton Ball, one of the many prominent artist-craftsmen discussed in “California Ceramics,” the Portfolio feature by Janice Lovoos.
