This stoneware platter was thrown on my pottery wheel and altered just a bit to allow the complimentary hand pulled lug handles to fit within the rim. The platter is recessed and is perfect for serving pasta, with the handles making it a breeze to carry to the table. It is glazed in a warm turquoise glaze with rutile added to provide texture and depth. It provides a very nice contrast against the espresso colored clay. The center of the platter is highlighted with hakime brush decoration, which gives a subtle textured spiral effect. Food safe, oven and microwave safe and dishwasher safe. 9.5" diameter.
