A Guest Blog Post by Vanessa Mattsson-Boze. My love of clay started on the wheel, but since my time in the studio is so often piecemeal, I have found myself hand building more and more. These heart dishes started as a playful attempt at using up some random clay scraps, and have evolved over time as I have refined the form. They are relatively quick and uncomplicated, and a fitting Valentine’s Day project.
This harvest platter is inspired by the piles of leaves that collect under trees in the Fall. The organic form and warm color of this platter celebrate the season and would make a lovely handmade addition to any harvest table.

We are going to begin by rolling out a slab of clay. We have chosen a low fire white clay with grog from Standard for this project, but you can use any clay you are comfortable with. You can roll out a slab of clay either by using a rolling pin or a slab roller. We used our 22" Mini-Might II Table Roller to roll out this slab.
