crater glaze ceramic platter


Spectacular as a wall hanging or very special centerpiece on your table, Michael Hamlin's ceramic works are an ode to the textures, forms and colors of the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounding his home and the plants and flowers he grows in his gardens. Clearly he loves getting his hands into the thick of things and we couldn't be happier about that!

  • each piece is watertight with a heavily textured finish glaze
  • allow for variations in color from photo as the glaze changes across the surface
  • large platter 15" d
  • small platter 13.75" d

method & material:
Each clay vessel is handbuilt or thrown on the potter's wheel with a high iron-bearing body to which multiple layers of colored crater and matte ceramic glazes are applied. Fired in an electric kiln to 2163 Fahrenheit the works transform through a combination of slow and rapid cooling. Often times the crater glazes are fired multiple times to obtain an appealing movement of the glaze capturing a surface that feels energetic and alive.
