My Long Leaf Platter dishes are another useful addition to your dining set. Ideal to use for offering baguette or slices of bread at the centre of your dining experience. Or alternatively you can display candle tea lights along it’s length. Each one is handmade using the impression from a real loquat leaf and glazed with a rustic country green and white finish.
Firstly, I use a ‘Loquat Leaf‘ to create the leaf impression in clay and then form the shape into a long flat dish curling at both ends. The edges are moulded in an outward feathering action using water to smooth the clay to a fine rim. This brings a leaf like feel to the piece. My Long Leaf Platter dishes are the perfect way to make a lasting impression especially when combined with complimentary Leaf Serving Plates, Leaf Coasters and Leaf Side PlatesLeaf Side Plates (also available in my shop).
I use stoneware clay fired to 1260 degrees, making each plate durable for functional purposes. All glazes are dishwasher and food safe. However please read the additional care instructions below.
Dimensions: typically 14 x 30 cm leaf face with a curve depth of approximately 2 cm at the ends.
Please treat as a bone china plate. Hand wash in order to retain the glossy finish of the overall glaze. This will also help to retain the integrity of the edges.
