leaping hare ceramic large hanging platter by sophie smith
This beautiful decorative ceramic large platter has been handmade by Sophie Smith. The piece features a magical hare leaping through a meadow full of wild flowers, birds, bees and butterflies. A stunning piece of artwork, this platter would take pride of place on any sideboard. It can also be hung on a wall by attaching a loop of hanging wire through the hole on the back of the dish. A piece that will be adored for many years, it's a wonderful gift for anyone who loves hares.
This platter has been hand crafted with a creamy, raku crackled glaze, and the scene is hand painted. The hare has a pearlescent finish which really sparkles. To finish it is adorned around the edges with real platinum paint!
Abour Sophie Smith
Sophie Smith's quirky and creative ceramics are handbuilt using Limoges earthenware casting slip. She creates different textures and designs by cutting into the wet clay and by using slips as well as gloss and matt glazes. Finally Sophie adds gold and platinum precious metals to create an alluring finish, and each piece is fired three times. Her work has an emphasis on colour and fun!
