Boathouses, Plates, Shipwrecks and Underground Tunnels

Our recent visit to Dale Chihuly's Boathouse and the Williamson Tunnels in Liverpool as well as other troves of plates and glass found around the Mediterranean reminded me of the art plates we saw recently at Bellevue Arts Museum's "At Your Service" exhibit:

Note the two holes on the left side of the plate

including these two drilled pieces, above.  Even more exquisite than the jewelry is the plate left behind, the holes only separated by millimeters of porcelain.

Our visit to Chihuly's Boathouse was made possible by Anne Warjone Bridgeland and Leslie Chihuly.  Many thanks to them, and Dale, for an unforgettable evening.

Lovely! (I think the shards were in the museum at Antibes though, not Villefranche?)
