This rectangular shape platter was handcrafted using a slab/slump technique in a high firing stoneware clay.
The whole piece is hand painted followed by hand drawing the floral design, then I carved away everything that I wanted to expose. The finished piece is glazed with a glossy clear glaze to protect it from any stains.
The inspiration behind these pieces are big, bold and simple patterns put together. I draw patterns inspired in fabrics, wall papers, illustrations either modern or midcentury artistry.
My pieces are mostly minimalistic forms, many of them are intentionally imperfect, what I love is focusing on surface design and this piece is a great expression of it.
I can see this piece filled with delicious snacks and/or to decorate your beautiful table.
