These limited editions (each one numbered individually) porcelain dessert plates are based on Billy Sullivan’s bird drawings—a series of detailed observations that the artist makes at his East Hampton home while sitting before a large window overlooking the bird feeders outside. The artist draws with brushes, sticks, and black Chinese ink on various papers of different surfaces and records the date and time each bird is drawn. These drawings form a distinct branch within Sullivan’s art, continuing his concerns with observing life as it is lived in the moment.
