I love making Platters this is the largest size I make, wet they are made out of 30 pounds of clay and are 24 inches wide and about 4 inches deep. I make them so when they shrink they will fit on a 24 inch kiln shelf. I wish I cloud make them bigger but that would mean a bigger shelf and then a bigger kiln, some day....... They are made to hang on the wall or outside. The front of my shop is covered with them one day maybe the whole building will see...... I'll be making some more in smaller sizes too these will be painted with imagery and fired in the salt glazing kiln with more pots, some turtles and other animals I'm working on. Oh and today I had the doors hanging wide open!! It hit 68 degrees today saw some flies and mosquito crazy!!!!
