This ceramic square platter featuring a hand-painted bluebird motif works great as an accent piece or for serving up snacks.
About Vicki GillA potter with a painter’s background, Vicki Gill says she “fell in love with clay at first touch.” For her, the tactile impression is as important as the visual impression, so carving and texturing methods form a common thread throughout her body of work. The bluebirds on this platter were made using stamps carved from clay. The branches are also hand-carved, and the leaves are dimensional. The designs are handpainted with vibrant underglazes and finished with a tinted transparent glaze that Vicki formulated.
Vicki has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and drawing from Louisiana State University. She honed her pottery skills at Gaston College and the renowned Penland School of Craft.
Please Note: Each platter is individually hand-thrown and painted. Due to the handmade nature of the work, slight variations should be expected and embraced. Some platters feature two birds and some three.
