Oversize raku platter from the 1980s from the Healdsburg, CA workshop of noted ceramist Anthony G. "Tony" Evans, and Betty Jo Hughes..  A flowing design of koi fish with beautiful organic textures created by raku firing.  Equipped with a secure mounting mechanism on the back, and a numbered descriptive text.

Evans (1942-2009) had a very illustrious career as a material scientist, making meaningful contributions to the fields of metallurgy, mechanics, and industrial applications of ceramics, among others; in parallel to which he created studio pottery, certainly bringing his chemical understanding to bear on the questions of clay composition, glazes and firing techniques.

An interesting write-up of Evans' scientific career . . .
