This platter has a black frame which surrounds a color inlay made entirely of various shades of Blue, Green and Black. The color inlay is made in a style that I call Painterly due to the way the colors randomly flow and merge into one another like brush strokes. On this platter, I took advantage of the fact that Black becomes glossy at a lower temperature than all of the other colors. By fire polishing at just the right temperature, I was able to maintain a matte surface on the Blues and Greens, while making the black streaks in the inlay and the frame glossy. The difference in the light reflection of the matte versus the glossy surfaces provides another element of contrast in this piece. The edge of the panel features a beautiful Mint Green racing stripe.
This platter could be used to serve appetizers, Sushi or just as a decorative table centerpiece.
