Small Garden Posey Slipware Platter
A small handbuilt, terracotta slipware platter decorated with a painterly folk-art posey design in slips, metal oxides and stains. Finished with a luxurious, shiny transparent glaze. Underneath is unglazed terracotta and signed by the maker.
Please note that this piece has a small unnoticeable 2mm area where glaze has resisted the clay body and therefore is only suitable for decorative use. It can be hung on the wall using a plate hanger or wall disk.
Approx: 24cm x 19cm
About the Collection; Flora in an Old Garden
A new terracotta collection of celebratory hand-built platters, chargers and candlesticks which centre around the idea of the ‘Contemporary Heirloom’. Working with red terracotta clay decorated with slips (liquid clay) is a very old process steeped in history and folklore, which has an inherent warmth and earthiness. This collection explores my own interpretation of this traditional technique; I mix a palette of slips with both natural metal oxides and bright coloured stains which I apply in painterly, gestural floral patterns, swirling the slips together and highlighting the fluidity and richness of the material. These pieces are intended to fill a domestic interior with colour, pattern and flowers; bringing a sense of joy to the everyday. All pieces are handmade by me in my Norfolk studio.
Care: Intended for decorative use. Do not place in a dishwasher. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
