Ceramic Plate by Claude Vermette
1c Ceramic Plate, Claude Vermette, ceramic with copper hanging hardware, 9.75" round. 1980
This charming ceramic plate is by Claude Vermette, a artist from Montreal, Canada. Early in his career, Claude Vermette concentrated his efforts on architectural ceramics for which he created new forms of composition for the clay, a wider variety of modules for tiles and bricks, and new patented enamels. His 25 years as ceramist were characterized by close collaboration with architects and engineers, during which he produced large works in more than a hundred public buildings, more than a dozen Montreal subway stations, and the General Motors building in New York. The latter part of his career was spent as painter.
