HANDMADE FLUTED SIDE PLATE
Glazed in a matte, off-white colour, this wheel-thrown side plate comes in a rough, rustic clay and is finished with hand-carved fluting. Natural and imperfect, the subtle variations in the shape of each plate create organic curves when several plates are stacked on top of one another. Everything about these plates is perfectly imperfect.
Handmade in Long Island City, New York, by a potter who has honed her skill over decades. With a strong belief that design should be functional and enduring, the maker mindfully selects stoneware for its durability and finishes her pieces with custom-made glazes designed to withstand daily use.
Before commercial glazes became widely available, many potters were handed down custom glaze recipes from the teachers they trained with. Preferring to honour and preserve these traditions rather than substituting them for the commercial glazes widely available today, our maker continues to create her own glazes from her bright studio in Long Island City, New York, just outside of Manhattan. She shares her studio space with several other potters, exchanging skills in throwing or glazing expertise and collaborative support where needed.
Handmade in Long Island City, New York.
Care: dishwasher, microwave and oven safe. This range is finished with a matte glaze and as with all matte glazes, marks from sharp objects such as cutlery will begin to leave their trace over time. Most of these marks can be removed with baking soda and a scouring sponge, by buffing the baking soda into the dish for several minutes.
Note: Each piece is handmade and therefore expect that every individual item will be unique. Variations in shape and finish are part of the appeal of these imperfect pieces as are small flecks or imperfections in the glazing. We encourage you to embrace these as part of the charm of the unique artisanal process and to not look upon them as flaws.
