More about this piece

This was my first attempt at hand-coiling a large, round serving platter.  It is in pretty constant use.  You can use it as a cheese board; lay out a selection of antipasti; put a dish of dip in the middle and surround it with crudités, crisps, tortilla chips or toasted pita bread; you can cover it with cup-cakes.  I was attempting to emulate the designs of Portuguese pottery, not terribly successfully I fear, but I was so thrilled with it when it came out of the kiln!
