Porcelain Pottery Oval Platter with Partridges/Leaves 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 the new Partridge Family pattern in green and blue. Nice flat interior for maximum food presentation. Very mid-century-modern.
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 blue and green. 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.
