I made Verde Oval 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.

Verde is the glaze combination I am using here.  First I dip maybe half of the tray in the copper green that I make, rolling the glaze up on either end.  And then dipping in the cream rust I make, ensuring there is an overlap of the two glazes.  Where the two meet creates an interesting textural component.  This combination results in a clean and soothing surface.

Verde Oval will hold a sugar and creamer; 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 4.5″ Wide. Makes a great wedding, birthday, holiday, house warming, thank you gift.  Give the gift of handmade pottery and jump start a collections; or, keep it for yourself.  Add the sugar and creamer and you’ve got a set!

2200 degrees F in a conventional electric kiln.

Pair with Verde Sugar Round and Verde Wee Creamer or Verde Shakers
