This snowflake plate starts as a slab of redware clay that is rolled out by hand using a large rolling pin. Using the same techniques as potters from the 17th and 18th centuries, the Liberty Craftworks artisans form the slab into a plate using a drape mold. Liquid clay colored with metallic oxides is poured into the plate. Before the plate is completely dry, it is decorated by hand with the snowflake design. Variations in size and color may occur. Food and dishwasher safe. 6" diameter.
