Wheel thrown serving plate with carved rim. Fired in Anagama kiln (Japanese wood firing kiln) for 60 hours at maximum temperature 1300°C. During such firing burning wood produces fly ash which settles on the pieces, and the complex interaction between flame, ash, and the minerals of the clay body forms a natural ash glaze. Due to such complicated process this glaze shows great variation in colour, texture and thickness, ranging from smooth and glossy to rough and sharp.

 

! The inner surface of this plate is slightly rough, so I would recommend to use it mostly as a serving plate. It’s great for appetizers, sandwiches, cheese and sushi.

 

Dimensions are approximately 2 x 21 cm (without rim)
