Off-white ceramic plate with artists' finger prints on front and reverse edges in black ink.

A series of off-white ceramic dinner plates, each one augmented with two glazed thumb prints on the top and the implied handler’s remaining eight finger prints on the bottom side. Conceived to appear as if the plate has been presented with two hands like a business card with traditional Japanese formality. Sold individually with finger prints available in red, rose, pink, black, grey, blue, dark blue, violet and light green.
