Design Series for Collectors
This series was one of the first series realized in the collection. The gravity platter name came about thru the process in which these platters are created. Towards the end of the process bowl like forms are rocked back to prepare for spinning out the forms into large platters. Gravity is used to create the organic and fluid undulations in the platter forms. Thus, the Gravity Platter.
These are based on a specific design and pattern on the form. The fat wrap is exactly what it infers – a fat spiral wrap around the piece, or several fat wraps circling around the form. Most of these to date have been undulating platters with the fat wraps over clear glass.
