Description

I made Taos Salad Plate on the potter’s wheel from an iron bearing stoneware clay. It has a slight trimmed foot and a beaded rim.

The “Taos” glaze is a 4-part application.  First I dip half the plate in a floating blue glaze that I make.  Next I dip the other half in a copper green glaze, which I also make.  Then I pour cream rust glaze (yup, make this glaze as well) over the seam of the blue and the green glazes.  And lastly, I pour a red gold glaze (purchased commercially) over the top.  Each plate will have a slightly unique melding of the four glazes; but the overall effect is consistently reminiscent of the Northern New Mexico landscapes.  Blue skies, green pinon, amazing clouds, and golden sunshine.

I fire all my dinnerware to at least 2200 degrees F so it’s durable, strong, and safe for dishwasher, microwave and oven.

Use for salad, yes, or use as a sandwich plate.  Serve snacks or sides as well.

Taos Salad Plate makes a great thank you gift, housewarming gift, holiday or birthday gift.  A set of 4 makes a great wedding gift.  Start your collection of Taos dinnerware or add to an eclectic mix.  It all works.

Dishwasher and oven safe.
