Seder Plate I

The abstract design of this seder plate echoes the collage-like quality of the Passover haggadah, an anthology of texts from Torah, Talmud, Midrash, and folksong. This seder plate is a symbolic landscape. Ordinary plates, when wiped clean, leave no hint of their previous use. Here, the plate bears traces of what has been there, and points toward what will be there again. It is a repository of memory, whose mysterious, fossil-like impressions provoke interpretation and elaboration.
