Plates and Dishes
The flat form of the plate or platter and the wide generous form of a large dish provide a fabulous vehicle for decoration, storytelling and exploring texture and colour in ceramics.
Anne Barrell Ceramics
A large dish with painterly decoration. There is also a lot of detail on the back.
Soft painterly glazes break on the form and decoration to highlight the warmth of the red earthenware clay.
There is a naive quality to the decoration. I was commissioned to make some large dishes referring to a trip to Greenland and it set off a whole range of imagery.
