Cheese & Tappas Platter - Gold
Item size: 25cm x 14,5cm. Porcelain. Cobalt Carbonate. 14K Gold. Handmade&Painted.
This design is inspired by visiting Crete in 2017. It is a visual celebration that summer is here! I made this platter by rolling a piece of porcelain clay out and then creating a relief of lines into the clay. I painted the platter with cobalt carbonate then fired it up to 1200'C.
I then proceeded to glaze the platter with transparent clay, this time firing up to 1270'C. Then for the last process, I painted on 14k gold luster onto the glazed platter firing it for the last time to 700'C.
Now the platter is ready to enjoy and is Oven, Dishwasher safe. Don't place the item in your microwave as the gold will create sparks in your microwave.
