Flowing Sea Blue Dinner Plate by Maria Polky
Updated: Sep 6, 2019
Dimensions: 10" W x 1.5" H
Medium Type: Ceramic
Artist Information: I am a ceramic artist based in South Portland, Maine creating textural and coastal pieces for the home. After learning to throw from art classes at Brunswick High School, I went on to study ceramics at RISD and graduated in 2014 with a BFA. I’m currently broadening my functional and sculptural practice in my home state of Maine.
Art Creation: This ceramic dinner plate was wheel thrown from a durable white stoneware clay body and taken to a cone six firing temperature. Layers of iron oxide and flowing blues create mountain landscapes, while crystalline yellow glaze runs down from the sides into a stormy, nautical glaze combination.
