"Voulkos found energy not in refinement but in rawness, rejecting the aesthetic of smooth, flawless glazes. In Plate, 1957, he applied rust to the plate with epoxy, producing a broken, craggy, surface. In so doing, he again denies the function of the plate as a plate and affirms it as a surface for image making, as he had in his Picasso-esque Plate (Bullfight) [92.1.153]."
(Mary Davis MacNaughton, Revolution in Clay, 1994, pg. 61)
