Description

Featured in Log Home Living -
Impress your guests with these beautiful plates...Perfect for a decedent dessert, bread, a spoon rest or soap dish...

These beautiful plates are hand formed from dark red stoneware clay & gazed in my aqua mist (or color of your choice). The rim is hand textured in my dot design with a special slip trailing technique. The glaze gently breaks away to reveal the design.

As with all my handmade pottery...every piece has its own unique handmade character and may have slightly different sizes, shapes and color variations. I never use molds and make each, one at a time. I always use lead free glaze & high fire in my kiln. All my dishes are food, dishwasher and microwave safe but hand washing is always recommended. Each piece is signed Back Bay Pottery and my initials.

Approximate measurements:
5" diameter
1/2" high

THIS IS FOR FOUR (4) DESSERT PLATES - MADE TO ORDER

>>> HOW CERAMICS ARE MADE <<<

1. CLAY BODY IS FORMED
A potter can form his product in many ways. Two main ways are wheel throwing or hand building.
2. DRYING – 7-10 days. Clay must be left to completely dry before going into the kiln. If there is moisture left in the clay it may explode in the kiln. The clay shrinks as it dries.
3. SANDING – final finishing touches before firing
4. BISQUE FIRING- 24 hours. Ceramic pottery pieces are put in the kiln for the 1st firing. This is when the clay is turned into a stone. The kiln takes between 6-8 hours to reach about 1900 degrees. It takes about 12 hours to cool.
5. GLAZING – Glaze can be applied in many ways, poured on, sponged on, painted on, dipped, and sprayed.
6. FIRING- 24 hours. The pottery pieces go in the kiln for their last firing. This time the kiln temperature reaches about 2200 degrees. The glaze turns into a glass like coating and becomes one with the ceramic piece.
