An original, handmade large porcelain elevated cake stand, or serving platter. This piece was wheel-thrown. It is suitable for a centerpiece platter for serving cake, desserts, or antipasti. A whimsical image of a Mama bird tending to her next in a cherry blossom is carved into the surface using a technique that originated in Korea known as mishima, in which I incised the drawing into leather-hard clay and then inlayed a black slip (liquid clay) into the illustrated lines. The bird, nest, cherry blossoms and leaves are then hand-painted on. A clear glaze is applied over the entire piece, except for the base. This piece can also be displayed on the wall when it's not in use (see pictures below)
Dimensions: This is a perfect centerpiece platter for serving cake, desserts, or antipasti.
Size is approximately 10 in (25.5 cm) in diameter and stands 2.5 in (6.5 cm) tall.
** Locally supplied fine porcelain clay and glazes
Please note: Handmade ceramic wares by their very nature are unique, inconsistent and may have some imperfections that do not detract from the beauty and function of the piece. Instead, these are indications of the maker's hand and I encourage you to embrace them. If multiple quantities of this piece is available, they may be similar but they won't be identical, as each one of them is individually made.
Please send me a message if you'd like to enquire about ordering multiple quantities, to order this piece in another of my botanical designs, or to order this Mama bird and cherry blossom tree design on another of my wheel-thrown forms.
