Ginkgo leaf handles add a decorator touch to our oval platter, hand-thrown and then glazed in yellow-ochre.
Fortunata's Ginkgo collection was inspired by the oriental ginkgo tree, symbol of longevity, resilience and peace. The graceful fan shaped leaves are skillfully sculpted onto each piece and then hand painted with a deep ochre glaze to create a distinct object of sophisticated beauty for discriminating tastes.
To make these ceramics, clay is thrown and shaped by hand on the potter's wheel, then glazed in distressed high gloss ochre-yellow, leaving portions of the terracotta bases and interiors exposed for textural contrast. For decorative use only.
