Mountain Ash Plater

Mountain Ash Plater


The Creating:

This is a handmade ceramic plater crafted from porcelaneous stoneware. Real foliage from a mountain ash was pressed into the clay body and removed to leave a beautiful and unique impression. The piece was then shaped, dried and fired to harden the clay. After the first fire, I very carefully painted the impression and decorated the outside with more details. Glazing finished, the piece went back into the kiln for the final firing. Durning the last firing the piece goes up to 2200 degrees F! At that temperature the clay becomes fully vitrified (no longer pores) and the glaze in now a glass.

The Details:

  • 100% handmade, which means always unique

  • Food safe, non toxic glazes

  • Dishwasher safe

  • Microwave proof
