Flower Plate - Tulip Tango - HandMade, Painted Garden Blossom Original Illustration Serving Platter - Hand Built Plate, Spring Wedding Gift
~*▲~*♥*~▲~*♥•*~TULIP'S VITAL SIGNS~*▲~*♥*~▲~*♥•*~
Press molding clay is my formal way of hand building using my own plaster molds and after the plate was bisque fired to cone 05, I drew the big dancing Tulip blossoms and leaves with pencil and started the 3 part layering of glaze paints to achieve the Brilliant Colors you see on the finished piece. I titled it "THE TULIP TANGO", signed and dated it, painted the foot-ring a stunning Spring green, added 2 coats of clear glaze and then fired it to cone 06.

The plate is 11" in diameter and has about a 1/2" foot-ring and a kind of a "wave" to the actual plate that I created by manipulating the clay after it came out of the mold.

*´♥.•NOTE~Please Remember: ALL of my Clay pieces are made Completely by Hand, start to finish, not a store bought dish that I am writing and painting on and baking in an oven {where the Design will eventually fail}....that's what makes them Super Extra Special!!
All of my handmade pottery is painted with lead free/food safe glazes. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, although I do recommend hand washing because my carefully made clay pieces, although very durable, happily deserve a little more love than commercially manufactured ware. Please do not put this in the oven!

This lovely plate will make an excellent serving dish and when not in use can rest in a plate stand as a beautiful art accent in your home. Will also be a thoughtful and stunning gift for a Wedding, Shower or Birthday...or Mother's Day!
