Hand-made by Ellen Evans' operation in New York, signed and dated on the reverse. No two alike. Patterns formed with glaze through fabric, lace and other materials. This oval platter/bowl is 15" long and 7"wide, in the geometric Strata pattern, color Charcoal. Its gentle upward curving edge , but flat bottom makes it useful for serving many types of food, from hors d'ouerves to sliced meat, vegetables or cake. Dishwasher and microwave safe with special care. Moves easily from dining to general decor, from traditional to contemporary. Neutral and appealing to wide audiences. Loved by all who are lucky enough to own these pieces. Great to mix and match patterns adding more, forming collections! Very special engagement, wedding, or anniversary gift.
