Gift from the kiln and the garden.

I was so happy to discover this dish when I visited the  Lancaster Creative Factory that Kevin Lehman had fired for me.  It did not fit in the wood firing we did in the spring.  It is made from a slab of porcelain clay that is decorated with multiple slips and then formed over a hump mold.  It has three feet.  This dish is glazed only on the bottom surface and then fired up side down with a ball of wadding and a brick holding it off the kiln shelf.  I love the gentle curve that places it somewhere between a bowl and a plate and perfect for holding a stray flower or a scrumptious desert.
