Bird lovers will adore this colorful plate!
It always feels like Spring has arrived when we see these delightful creatures return. Jennifer's Hummingbird plate is created by carving the bird's image into the clay; this is called sgraffito. The plate is slab built with satin underglazes of shiny sky blue, green, and reddish-orange accented with black outlines for this lively bird. The glazes are accented by black outlines and the plate is rimmed with natural brown clay.
A wire on the back allows you to wall mount your new treasure.
Jennifer, a full-time potter in Wake Forest, NC., creates a marriage between aesthetics and function, through distinctive use of color and form. Starting with a practical and useful form, the pottery becomes a functional palette for layers of colorants and carving. Finding inspiration in the endless imagery of the mountains and coasts of North Carolina, her pottery reflects it's vibrant colors with the earthy brown of the clay and the contrast of mattes and velvets against shiny and hard surfaces.
The plate measures approx 9.5" in diameter x 1.5" in depth.
Perfect for arrangements and a wonderful gift for a bird lover!
