I made Tempest Deep Dish Plate on the potter’s wheel from an iron bearing stoneware clay. It has a flat bottom and sturdy rim.
I call this three part glaze application “Tempest” because it can be dramatic and wild like a storm out at sea. First I dip half the plate in a floating blue glaze that I make. Next I dip the other half in a purple matte glaze, which I also make. I keep a gap between the two glazes because my next move is to pour a gold rust glaze over the gap tip it side to side. The result is some overlap with the blue and the purple glazes. And lastly, I daub red gold glaze here and there, like clouds, over the surface. Each plate will have a slightly unique melding of the 3 glazes; but the overall effect is consistently stunning.
I fire all my dinnerware to at least 2200 degrees F so it’s durable, strong, and safe for dishwasher, microwave and oven.
Meal in a bowl? Yes! Serving bowl? Sure! Use for salads, snacks or sides as well.
Tempest Deep Dish 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 dinnerware or add to an eclectic mix. It all works.
Dishwasher and oven safe.
