Porcelain serving tray, 13 1/4 inches long by 10 inches wide by approx. 1 inch high. Makes a great party platter. Signed “Paco” on the bottom. The 2nd picture is actually another platter of the same size, shown here so you can see the profile.
The colors on this are difficult to capture with the camera. The actual piece is brighter, with a true red.
The decorations of glaze stains are mixed into a wax solution and “splashed” with a brush. After the splashes have dried for a few days the background color is brushed on, the earlier splashes “resisting” because of all that wax. Although Paco uses this same technique to decorate a whole line of dinnerware, each piece is a unique expression of “controlled spontaneity” .
Fired to 2240 degrees F, producing a very durable product that does not scratch or chip easily that will be of service for many years. DW, MW oven safe and lead free.
