irregular platter with large hole

irregular platter with large hole


this stunning piece is up to 3,5cm thick in some places.
itīs somewhat of a miracle that it lasted through the
firing, and itīs single-fired too!
I attribute this to weeks of drying time, since this
mother of a plate is made from my regular plastic
porcelain clay, that I use for all my throwing.
I almost ripped it into two pieces when I tried to move
it onto a drying board and it fell on the radiator,
whoīs pattern is now petrified in one corner of the plate.
itīs a heavy piece with a landscape of a surface, and is
comfortable in a supporting role (for delicacies) or
a lead role
