I made Desert Hwy Tray from slab-rolled stoneware clay.  I drape the rolled clay over a mold, shaping it over the form and then cutting away the excess clay.  The form is dried slowly to avoid warping and has a flat bottom.

Desert Hwy is the glaze technique I am using here.  Beginning with a dip into the purple matte glaze I make; and then a dip on the opposite side in the floating blue glaze I also make.  Then a swath of red gold right down the middle, like a highway.  Some daubing here and there with a sash brush lends the appearance of clouds.  Somehow Neil Young’s “Unknown Legend” comes to mind.

Desert Hwy Tray will hold two finger bowls; or, a pair of salt and pepper shakers.  Use it to serve small servings of appetizers, like sushi or nuts or olives or relish.  Combine with a couple of finger bowls as a dipping set.  Display on a shelf or sideboard when it’s not in service.  Dishwasher, oven, and microwave safe.

9″Long x 4″ Wide.  Makes a great gift for birthday, holiday, house warming, and any occasion.  Give the gift of handmade pottery and jump start a collections; or, start building your collection!
