A functional collaboration between Shereen's pottery and the menu items at the Skillet, the pottery brightens the experience for diners and elevates the overall expressiveness of the restaurant experience. Shereen created the bowls, plates, and platters used everyday in the restaurant. We feel very fortunate to have her and the connection with Highland's University fine arts department.
"I have always enjoyed thinking about the intimate relationship of pottery with its user, and have often imagined people choosing cups or bowls from their cupboards that I made with my hands. The expansion of this thought into restaurant scale involving a countless number of people was very intriguing" - Shereen Lobdell 2019
