You are Awesome Porcelain Valentine Plate

Ceramic Platter

Created by Carol Barclay
A spray of vibrant hearts in many shades of red, pink and coral decorates this romantic plate. The artist mixes a palette of clay stains with fine porcelain slip, and uses the vivid shades to paint patterns on a very thin slab of porcelain.

Next, she cuts shapes from this colorful field and inlays them on pure porcelain squares. The pieces are given a rim, carefully dried, bisque fired, sanded, glazed and fired again. As you run your finger along the plate, you can feel the inlaid forms and understand how it was formed.

This porcelain plate would make a lovely Valentine's Day gift- perfect for special chocolates or a special dessert. A pair of them means you can share the goodies!

These porcelain plates are food safe, and can be used in the microwave, and cleaned in the dishwasher. Each plate is individually made, with its own pattern of color and form, so using it can be a daily delight. Serve tapas or sushi on it, or serve a special cheese or an array of yummy cookies.

The artist has earned numerous awards with her porcelain forms. She created a large porcelain wall sculpture for the Corning Glass Works Executive Club and her pieces have been exhibited at the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery.
