A Unique Ceramic Find!

SD Gallery recently acquired this unique ceramic plate piece by Erik Gronborg through a private collector. This piece was purchased during the Crocker Art Auction in 1983. When was the last time you saw ceramic works infused with photographic imagery? This piece is a beautiful find and would make a great addition to an eclectic home.
