Jellyfish Platter


Add a touch of artisan charm to any table with this porcelain jellyfish platter by Anja Bartels. Anja’s nautical surface designs are inspired by her love of the ocean and her childhood memories of growing up in a port city on the North Sea. Each plate is hand-thrown on the potter’s wheel, then painted with a dark underglaze that is scraped away (using a technique called sgraffito) to reveal the porcelain underneath. The center of the platter is painted with a gorgeous ocean-blue glaze.

About Anja Bartels
Originally from Hamburg, Germany, Anja discovered pottery making while living in an intentional community in Virginia. This sparked a passion that led her back to Germany to study in the German Ceramics Guild. After completing a rigorous three-year apprenticeship with a master potter, she received her journeyman ceramics degree from the German Chamber of Crafts and Trades. She is now an artist-in-residence at Odyssey ClayWorks in Asheville.
