Loose Square Slab Plattersold:)
3.5 x 30 x 30 cm
reduction fired stoneware, blue slip
This reduction fired stoneware square slab platter will be a favorite, perfectly sized for multiple uses. Put it on your kitchen island to place fruit on it. It also makes a great cheese and cracker platter or cake serving platter. The denim coloured glaze is so neutral – goes with any décor or tableware. Would also look beautiful in a display stand or hanging on the wall when not in use.
Celia Rice Jones’ initial Art School training was in England with Arthur Griffiths and David Leach, within the Leach, Cardew and Davis traditions. Primarily interested in vessels for everyday use, she tries to retain evidence of the clay’s plasticity throughout the process, including the use of slips and always wanting to go beyond the thrown form. Time away from the wheel allows for explorations into more figurative work both modeling and working with slabs. Celia has worked and exhibited in England, Japan and Australia as well as primarily here in Canada.
