Stormy Seas Plate - Made to Order

Ready in 4 weeks

Alive with the drama of a storm gathering off the North Devon coast.The colours of my 'Stormy Seas' dinner plate are evocative of the brooding ocean depths. 

Buy this plate on it's own, as a set of four or combine with the other colours in the collection; Sea Shell and Sea Foam.

I love the coast and wanted to create a set of dinner plates inspired by the sea. The shape of these plates is reminiscent of rock pools at my favourite Devon beach. The colours have been chosen specially to reflect the changing moods of the ocean.

Each plate is individually rolled out, place over a special mould and cut by hand. Dried very slowly for at least a week to avoid warping the plate is then fired to 1060 degrees. It is glazed using a stunning stoneware glaze with layers of greys and swirls of deep glossy blues. The base of this plate is left raw (unglazed) giving it an organic quality. The plate is high fired for a second time making it strong and durable. My potter's mark is on the base rim.

The perfect gift for foodies, as a wedding or housewarming gift or just to treat yourself.
