Black Long Oval Slipware Platter II

Regular price

Regular price £180.00

This is a handmade ceramic platter, decorated with slip (liquid clay). A black slip base is poured over the plate when wet, and the white slip trailed by hand deftly over the top. Inspired by hand writing studies and traditional motifs, each plate is a unique variation on the slip trailed pattern. After an initial firing, the piece is glazed in a food-safe glossy glaze and fired in the kiln once more. 

Each piece is handmade by Ali in her Norfolk studio in small batches, and fired in an electric kiln powered by renewable energy. 

About Ali Hewson

Ali Hewson makes ceramic tableware and vessels inspired by 17th century domestic objects, along with traditional handwriting studies and repeated motifs. Each piece is made individually, either painted or slip trailed, from her studio in Norwich. Inspired by English slipware, her work applies traditional techniques to contemporary forms. Materials lead Ali’s refined colour palette. Iron and cobalt oxides give browns, black, and blue, paired with the warm natural colours of iron-heavy and white stoneware clays sourced from within the UK. Ali makes small batches of slip from recycled clay, which are then carefully coloured with oxides before use.
