I don’t think that a professional marketing executive would think much of my description here, but it’s the best I can do while still being accurate. I can vaguely remember my mother telling me that you should never put blue and green together – I don’t know where that idea came from, and I think it is nuts – but if it ever was a rule, I have broken it with exuberance.
So here is a splodgy platter. I must confess that I started out to make a bowl, and then the clay decided that it would prefer to be a platter instead. And now that I can imagine it piled high with chocolate brownies or – even better – cheese scones – I see the clay’s logic. It is 26cm across, and 6cm high because it has a 1cm foot ring, which raises it up. £40.
