Perennial Geranium leaves were pressed into the clay leaving impressions of their veining. Each leaf can only be used one time creating a wonderfully unique piece.
This plate is made from a flat slab of red earthenware clay; the leaves were pressed into it and then the slab was laid into a curved mold and trimmed to size. Slip was painted over the clay and the leaves were removed before the bowl was placed into the kiln to finish the piece. The glaze is food-safe.
