"The autobiography of a garden is a set of twelve plates by Andrew Raftery. Based on drawings and paintings of the artist working in his garden during the twelve months of the calendar year, the images were engraved on copperplates. From copper they were printed onto special decals that were then applied to the twelve earthenware plates, 12.5 inches in diameter, designed by the artist to receive the images. Each month is identified on the reverse by an engraved backstamp. The plates were produced at the Rhode Island School of Design between 2012 and 2016 in an edition of 80. They were first exhibited from September through November 2016 at the Ryan Lee Gallery in New York City."--Page [5].
