Platters: Four Approaches to Making and Decorating Plates

Posted On September 19, 2014 0 Comments

Learn How to Make Perfect Plates!
It is a common misconception to think that plates are easy forms to make because the challenge of achieving height isn’t there. But plates can be tricky. Issues of warping and cracking can be common if you don’t know what you’re doing. So, in this Ceramic Arts Daily Presents Compilation, we’ve gathered four talented artists to demonstrate how they approach plates. Ben Carter makes a handbuilt oval platter; Adam Field throws a plate with a carved altered rim; Forrest Lesch-Middelton throws a large platter with screen-printed decoration and a lobed rim; and Meredith Host throws a porcelain plate perfect for colorful decoration. Not only do these artists share insights into how to get plates structurally correct, they also share great decorating techniques that will help you complete the process.
