A free-form, spiraling, red stoneware platter with a lava red-orange glaze.
This is a twice-thrown platter. It was thrown on the wheel then stretched out from the original round shape by throwing it at an angle onto a plaster slab over and over until it was stretched into the desired shape. It was then placed on cotton stretching fabric in a quilting frame to give it a bowl shape. Most of the platter is the natural burnt orange of the raw clay. The center is glazed with a red-orange glaze that has incredible depth and mottling.
Makes a great centerpiece, fruit platter, serving dish, decorative pottery....
About 18 inches long and about 11 1/2 inches wide. It is big and heavy so shipping will be expensive.
Food-safe. Okay in the dishwasher.
I accept Paypal, credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Wallet, etc.
Pottery is heavy and fragile so shipping is always expensive. I use 200# test boxes, lots of foam and bubble wrap, double-box when necessary and take the time to pack so that you don't get a box full of shards. Choose cheapest shipping and I will upgrade the shipping to Priority Mail at no extra cost.
I ship next business day (usually including Saturday).
I ship Internationally to many countries. I do not ship to some countries where I've had problems with delivery, customs, or insurance, or other retailers have reported problems with lost shipments (such as Italy, Russia, and Brazil). Internationally I ship Priority Mail International and Priority Mail Express International.
