Happiness: the Tribute 21 Plate Challenge

Competition Details


by Jan Reber Hammett


The predominant symbol of the spiral indicates 'ongoing': efforts, results, life... The representations of a sea shell - once an animal's habitat; then water - life force of all live things, yet strong enough to wear down stone; paint - from elements of the earth; paintbrush stroke - all colors of nature and imagination; music - a song sung by a human being, a brook, or a calf - all can be danced to if we are listening. And the butterflies: Life, freedom... beauty, and beautifully different - as we all are from each other.
