Porcelain Pottery Oval Platter with Black Lotus in Arabesque OVERSIZE
I love this oval shape! It is one of the original shapes I explored when I started working with clay. DO NOT PUT THIS IN THE OVEN.
This is an elegant oval platter shape decorated with green lotus flowers in an arabesque. I made this out of a white porcelain clay body. I handbill it out of slabs of clay over a form I created. The foot rings are applied by hand The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique in black. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the entire piece. Food safe. I don't recommend the dishwasher on a piece of this size. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. This pot is approximately20.5"long x 9" wide x 1.5" deep. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
