How to throw square plates?
I throw a big open cylinder in a certain height. When the clay is leather hard I trim the feet and cut it in pieces. In one movement I can make four small plates.
These four plates are about 12x12 cm (4,7" x 4,7") and every plate is slightly different. The top is glazed with a strong, white, home-made glaze and of coarse food safe. The bottom is brushed with a terra sigillata which gives a skin-colour and a soft touch. Every piece is signed with an O from Oker.
These plates are perfect to use for serving an appetizer or small tapas.
