For about three years running, now, I haven’t been able to take it for granted that my platters would not warp in the kiln. What gives? My clay has been a bit wet, perhaps, or my kilns don’t fire evenly, or….? You benefit, because I create more platter seconds than any other form. The piece on the right in this picture has a beautiful impression of rattlesnake root leaves, and is glazed in a deep, but translucent cobalt blue. It’s perfectly safe for serving food and going into the dishwasher, but its rim is noticeably warped when placed flat on a table. When shown in a plate stand, however, it looks perfect. 1.5″ deep by 12.75″ diameter. Usually $360: Second $160.
