The Potter’s Hands - Platter
How jars of clay are shattered and given a new life is a process that is worth the wonder and celebration. This hand-crafted piece is masterfully shaped and dimpled by the potter and the idea that every deft stroke comes from a person, a real person’s hands, is why I love handmade pieces so much.
They come with stories untold, memories that come to mind as the potter works on the wheel, conversations spoken as he decides takes a sliver off an end and pull another end for a more fluid, organic movement. Then a new home is found for a piece of clay that would have otherwise been left unseen, unmoulded and naked.
The impressions on this piece remind me of The Potter’s Hands, and so the name.
Measures 34cm at its longest.
Imperfections are part of the charm of these handmade pieces.
