Handbuilt Plate/Bowl

Handbuilt Plate-Bowl 17 cm in diameter x 5 cm in height.

These plates were handbuilt. Inspired by birch barks, shells found at the edge of the St-Lawrence, stones tumbled and worn by waves. This design showcases all the so-called flaws of clay: stress marks, cracks, rough edges, imperfect surfaces. Formed from soft slabs of clay assembled and flattened to obtain an organic shape. Each plate is unique in shape and differs in surface markings.  An iron oxide wash was applied to the outside of each plate.
