Nicole Aquillano / Special Day Plate
Designed in collaboration with Practice Space in an edition of 12, these porcelain plates are cast in a mold and incised with a Japanese technique called "mishima" by Nicole Aquillano in her Boston studio. When Diana was growing up, her family had a special plate. If it was your birthday, or you’d done something you were proud of, or maybe you needed some cheering up, someone in the family would put the plate at your seat before dinner. It let you know that everyone shared in your special day. She’s been looking for a beautiful, handmade one for her own home ever since; when she discovered Nicole Aquillano’s work she knew that she would be the one to make it. And it turns out, her family also had a special day plate! We hope it makes for many special days in your own family.
