The texture of these unglazed platters lends a natural look and feel while providing the benefit of added grip when carrying items. The teardrop shape gives a convenient place to grasp the platter while carrying and the hole lets you hang it for storage or display when not in use (but I don't know why you'd want to hide something this beautiful away)
Did you know that unglazed ceramic is fired at a higher temperature initially to make it super hard, non-porous, and just as food safe as glazed ceramics? Now you have that bit of trivia to pull out when your guests ask about your gorgeous new hand-crafted unglazed piece sitting on the table it all it's matte, natural glory!
Shannon Penner of Full Quiver Designs was gifted two slabs of clay for Christmas one year and what started out as a hobby has turned into a thriving ceramics business. A naturally artistic and creative person, it is no surprise to anyone who knows her that Shannon took to ceramics as well as she did and now has trouble keeping up with demand.
With her daughter “Peanut” and baby Axel at her side, Shannon is spreading her love of art and artistry to the next generation; check in for other one-off pieces including some of Janna’s (Peanut) pinch pots planted with drought tolerant succulents.
