Fall is a gathering. Raking leaves, to be sure, but also assembling in front of a fire or around a table. Thanksgiving, of course, may be the pinnacle of gathering. And yet it’s not just family and friends and food that provide the pleasure: It’s the tableware itself. The legacy of an gift reappearing, an ancestors cherished cake stand or cruet returning. Scope artists focus on functional ware that showcase a family recipe and hoping that the dish you choose becomes a cherished family heirloom.
