Spring is here....... Always and Forever!!.....in this Glorious Plate.....YAY!!
This stunning white blossoming Dogwood 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. Would also be a thoughtful, unique and simply gorgeous gift for a Wedding, Bridal Shower or Birthday!

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 blossoms and unopened buds on it with pencil and started the 3 part layering of glaze paints. I decided to make the background a "tie-die" mix of greens, then titled it "SIMPLY SPRING", signed and dated it, painted the back an intense yellow ochre, 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: these dishes are made Completely by Hand, start to finish,and Kiln Fired 2 times. They are 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!
