Party Plate with Beach sand from Sandy Point Beach in Lawn #N2076

Alexis Templeton


Beach sand from Sandy Point Beach in Lawn Newfoundland was swirled into the porcelain clay as it was thrown on the wheel. The sand is visible behind the turquoise crystalline glaze and also visible in the clear glaze on the rim. 

I’ve always seen water and ice in this crystalline glaze so adding beach sand just seems to fit with the icy shores of Newfoundland.

Approximately 17 centimetres from rim to rim, clear glaze.

Party Plates started as a warm-up exercise. Whenever I have a day at the wheel, I start by making six small plates - but repetition has never been my strong suit and these bread and butter plates evolved! With a variety of surfaces and textures - often involving beach sand, I think these plates are fun and ideal for entertaining.

Whether your party involves birthday cake or drinks with canapés, your guests will enjoy choosing their favourite plate from your collection.
