These beautiful dishes by Stephen Farnan are individually handmade on the potter’s wheel. A white slip is then applied and the pieces are left to dry slowly before bisc firing, after which they are glazed using an earthenware glaze at a very high temperature to result in a cracked appearance. After this, the sketches of flowers are applied and the pieces are re-fired, then washed with an inky glaze. The 'Magnolia' dish is a truly beautiful item which can be used functionally or decoratively and makes for a stunning wedding gift for any couple with a love of art, design or contemporary craft. €295.
