Waylande Gregory began to produce small porcelain figures, plates, and candlesticks in 1935 in order to support his family. He produced more than a thousand of these small-scale works in his lifetime. Although the three figures in Gregory’s Plate are abstracted, the gender of each is still recognizable. The central figure is a thick-hipped woman and beneath her are two men who appear to be vying for her attention.
