Over sixty illustrations of the decal plates show the range of Kottler's imagery and the piquancy of his humour. In the late 1960s influential ceramist Howard Kottler (1930-1989) began to experiment with commercial decals and store-bought plates. Kottler altered the decals, often with political intent, by cutting and combining them, then adhering them to cheap white porcelain plates he purchased in bulk. Kottler's apparent rejection of the hand-made object and embrace of the conceptual over the tactile were unique among the revolutionary ceramists of the 1960s and 1970s.
The plate featured on the cover reflects this Northwest artist's gay theme. A chronology spans early surrealism to Kottler's death in 1989. Also included is text from Kottler's 1969 self-published catalog titled Howard Kottler.
