Ceramic African Large Decorative PlateSM009A
These exquisite, hand painted, and hand formed ceramic decorative plates embody the artistic expression of primitive African cultures. Perfect African piece to add to your living, kitchen or dining area.
These vessels are hand formed using the same technique adopted by these cultures, namely coiling and pinching. In the coiling method, pieces of clay are rolled into long, thin ropes. These ropes are joined together during the assembly process, with the aid of slip (a clay and water mixture) painted onto the upper edges of the coils. The pinch method is the simplest clay hand-building technique, involving only the use of hands to wedge a ball of clay and mold it into the required shape.
Made in Cape Town, South Africa. Please allow for slight variances as each piece is hand made.
Mix and match and pair up with Shelley's platters and bowls.
