Asymmetrical Small Plate/Tray #f75

This asymmetrical plate/tray is about 25 centimetres long and 8 centimetres wide.

The pots I make are an exploration of how sculptural form, function and simplicity can exist in the everyday, utilitarian object.  The soft slab, hand building process is a direct reference to the construction of old-timey, worn tin ware. Surface created through wood firing helps evoke a sense of nostalgia, creating a dialogue of memory between user and maker through everyday use.
