Speckled blue pen platter
This narrow pen platter was created using earthenware clay. Once the clay was carefully rolled out it was cut to shape and then pressed over a wooden mold to give it the raised shape. Once it is dry enough to take off the wooden block, a silk screen stencil is used to paint on the botanical detail. Each platter has a transparent glaze on the top and a bold colour on the bottom.
This platter has love speckled blue glaze on the bottom and edge, the inside of the platter has a plant detail and transparent glaze, making it food safe. It is about 19cm long and 5cm wide.
