Sarah Bak - Red Flower Serving Platter
Large porcelain serving platter, designed to perk up your table. This hand thrown platter is a generous size for your next gathering and would be perfect for a tray of cookies or finger sandwiches. Painted in a festive red flower pattern.
A little bit of info about the process: After the pot is thrown with porcelain clay, the bottom trimmed of excess material and the handle is added, I paint on the design using underglazes while the clay is still damp. This is called the leather hard stage, and I love the sheen of the clay at this point in the process. Then, I carve through the painted areas with a special tool to create the white lines that you see within the design. Once it is fully dry, it is fired the first time, a clear glaze is applied and it is then fired the second time to a much higher temperature, approximately 2165 degrees. Each piece goes through multiple steps and takes 3 to 4 weeks to complete.
Approximate dimensions: 11” diameter x 2” deep
All of my pottery is made for everyday use, is dishwasher safe and microwaveable.
