Impressive artist Kim Joon's plate art blends western rock with traditional dinnerware in an interesting way. Joon has been known to create artworks that combine tableware with anatomy, and he continues to use that style of art here. Each of these plates features a hand placed in the middle, covered in colors that match the plate's design. What sets this series aside from his other anatomical tableware collections is that western rock is a clear theme in these works.

The hands seen on these porcelain plates are positioned in a rock'n'roll pose often seen at band shows. Aside from the gesture being made by these hands, each one is also has a band name written on it, complete with pictures from album covers.

What's really intriguing about these pieces is that they mix something traditional (porcelain tableware) with something edgy and rebellious (rock'n'roll). Though these things seemingly don't go together, Joon's plate art is fun to look at.
