I think a lot of potters play around with this idea- a plate of fake food. I started to type: "a fake plate of food", but realized, hey- it's a real plate. Anyway, I've had some of these components around for a while, and finally decided to try it. Actually it was in my previous firing, but it really needed improvement, so I added a band on the plate, changed the cookie color and tried to improve the green on the peas. Taking the photo in full sunshine helped a lot- it's still not that appetizing.
I will get a hanging lamp kit at the box store, and finish this. It's about a foot in diameter.
This dish as about 7" long. The impressions were made with a round shell that had a hole in the middle- my grandson's found it.
This one is almost 15" wide , 3 inches deep. It's a keeper! (by that, I mean it has something wrong with it, so I'll probably keep it). I had a few test bottles on the shelves above this pot, and some particles jumped off and fell through the crack between the half-shelves. The particles are some big volcanic grit that I had dipped the sides of the bottles in, then fired them "grit up", in case the grit wanted to slide off. I didn't think it would be jumping off! There were about 8 dark specks on one side of the bottom of the bowl. After a little sanding, the area is fairly smooth, but doesn't look good. Am surprised it's hard to see in the picture.
