Platter - Collected 10.24.2018
Porcelain clay, glazed interior & raw exterior
Warm porcelain body
Approximately 15" diameter x 3" height x .5" thick
At 9 lbs 7 ounces, this is a heavy and majestic piece documenting a large, late-season orb weaver web. There were only two pieces this size in 2018 that made it, and this the only one that remains. Near upper edge of interior lip, there is a deep thumb-print and glaze-sealed hairline, surface crack. The print and crack are of no structural significance, but reflect the process of gathering outdoors on wet slabs of temperamental clay.
