Margaret Frith - Platters

Platters in porcelain do not come easy! The form demands skill in the making and losses can be high. The sections of the plate must be carefully considered or splitting in drying can occure. Nevertheless they do give good areas for decorative techniques. Different treatments of the forms when throwing include squaring the rims, paddling or fluting.
