I had the good fortune to work with Graham Brawley who is the director of sales and marketing for the Ocean State Shellfish Cooperative in Rhode Island. He commissioned Wanderlust Ceramics to make 20 Oyster platters using their logo and artwork in combination with hand molded ceramic oysters sculpted onto slump molded platters. He has created a very successful brand for the 6 oyster farms in the cooperative and has been visionary in promoting sustainable aquaculture which supports local oysters farms and preserves Rhode Island's beautiful coastal resources. This cooperative represents a model for sustainable and integrative community based businesses. Their commitment to the quality and freshness of their product insures that their oysters are consistently delicious.

Making these platters was a big challenge but by this last platter I felt like I knew what I was doing.
