Porcelain serving tray, 13 1/4 inches long by 10 inches wide by approx. 1 inch high. Makes a great party platter with the dip bowl, listed separately, for chips and dip. Signed “Paco” on the bottom.The 3rd photo is a side view of another platter of the same size to show depth.
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.
