A whole pod of humpback whales swim round-and-round on this plate. It is handmade and hand-etched, with a one-of-a-kind design.
Please note that the glaze is a matte surface (rather than the shiny gloss glaze in some of my other pieces). The matte glaze highlights the tactile, etched surface.
It can be used as a functional plate at your table and/or hung on the wall for a piece of art in your home.
This stoneware piece is handmade and hand-etched in my woodcut-style design, using traditional sgraffito (etching) techniques in a contemporary way.
READY TO DISPLAY: Each plate has holes drilled in the top center rim, and a wire is supplied for easy hanging. (Hang from nail or sturdy picture hanger.)
COLLECTING and USING: Great entry into starting a collection of pottery from contemporary makers. It is art you can use every day, and surrounding yourself with handmade objects is good for the soul!
