This piece may be used for a cupcake, cheese, or any number of things. It is made in 1 piece. The stand is made with stoneware clay. The glaze is called it was a dark and stormy night and is food safe. The design on the top is made with a wiggle wire and along the side the design is made with chattering. Chattering is created by using a very sharp tool against the clay while the potter's wheel turns

The idea to create this came about last summer. I enjoy attending pottery workshops to learn new techniques. Pottery workshops also present an opportunity to share ideas with other potters. The instructor demonstrated how he makes a cake stand in 1 piece. The potter next to me didn’t understand how the instructor had thrown the stand, so I showed her using a pound or two of porcelain clay that I had on the potter wheel head in preparation for throwing a tumbler. When I finished throwing the stand, I looked at it and thought it would make a great cupcake stand since it was much too small for a cake. (I thought of this because my colleague, Ariel, loves cupcakes and when we work together, desert often includes a cupcake.) Another potter thought it would make a great display stand for cheese. Soon many of the workshop participants were throwing more cupcake/cheese stands than cake stands. Seems that these stands tickled the fancy of many potters. I hope you enjoy them as well. Please let me know if there are other things that you like to display on these stands.

The stand measures 4 1/2 inches wide and 1 3/4 inches high.
