This is a large hand-thrown decorative serving platter. The platter is cut and shaped in several stages an finally the scrolling leaf pattern is applied to the surface.
It is glazed with a copper-red interior accented by a neutral tan trim. Copper red can be a very finicky glaze to work with as the glaze can loose its red color during the firing process. This piece retained its rich red color which breaks nicely over the throwing rings at the center of the plate. Because of the volatile nature of copper reads and the firing process each piece develops its own unique characteristics.
This is a beautiful piece for display or for serving. All glazes are lead-free and food-safe.
