'kettle' carved dinner plate
A dinner plate/ platter with kettle design. Great for dishes with some sauce, due to the dipped centre section.
Made from a rolled slab of porcelain, laid gently into a slump mould and trimmed. Brushed with blue porcelain slip (liquid clay) then freehand carved and scratched (sgraffito technique) to reveal the design and fired in an electric kiln. Coated in a clear glossy glaze, and then fired again to 1250 degrees. Food safe. Hand washing is recommended. Bottom stamped with 'bear head' motif.
A handmade, non uniform piece - please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing. Please note - Large plates are sent by courier due to size and weight.
