The Whitethorn Square Plate, measuring 20.5cm square, is an elegant plate or serving platter, handmade by Markus Jungmann in very fine porcelain. The surface decoration is based on a typical winter scene on the country lanes of Cork and Kerry, where you will find silhouettes of whitethorn branches with only a hand full of berries remaining against the backdrop of a cool, cloudy sky. The image is created by applying the glaze by hand using traditional printmaking techniques and then manipulating the firing atmosphere in a gas kiln to develop the rich hues.
Shape and Colour: Made and glazed by hand, unlike the uniformity of mass production, you will notice slight variations in shape and colour. Colours may not necessarily be exactly as depicted in these images.
Lead Time: This hand crafted piece takes approx three weeks to produce.
Caring for Porcelain: Porcelain is very durable and is microwave, oven, freezer and dishwasher safe. But to ensure the longest life for your porcelain ware clean after use by hand with warm soapy water. Don’t leave food or drink overnight as it may stain. If stains occur leave the ware stand in a vinegar soak of hot water and white vinegar for ten minutes, then wash as normal, staining should scrub off.
