Featured Design: Seahorse & Starfish Platter (2013/11)

This month's featured design celebrates the beauty of the Seahorse & Starfish Platter.  

This elegantly shaped three-sided porcelain oval platter has a generously proportioned well area rimmed by a parade of four seahorses and a splash of three starfish, each of which were cast from dried natural specimens.

We know that the seahorses are “social” creatures in their natural element, and this platter is about as close to “community” as they’re going to see outside of the sea!  

You’ll find the 14″ diameter sufficiently large to host a large presentation of any gourmet feature you may bring to the table; from Dungeness crab legs to line-caught coastal tributary salmon, you'll find this platter is the perfect complement to your culinary presentation.

The smooth, natural feel of porcelain has a warmth to it unlike any other material. Compare it to ceramic, or dolomite, or stoneware.   There’s a vibrancy in the way the light reflects off the surface and among the details of the sculpture that is unique to  porcelain, which allows the artist to achieve amazing accuracy due to the finest granularity of porcelain's raw materials.

This Seahorse and Starfish Porcelain Platter design complements many of the other nautical themes that we offer, and you’ll find it a foundational piece to your collection.

Like all of our designs, this platter is safe in the microwave and feels right at home in the warm water of the dishwasher!
