Oblong Lace Plate
The one piece that started it all!! A friend of mine had just returned from a winter's stay in Chattanooga, TN and was completely blown away by the beautiful and artistic community. I fell in love with this town through his stories. So, off to instagram I went and started to search all things Chattanooga and BAM! There was this beautiful red lace, oblong ceramic plate by the one and only 'Bonnie Potter.' I knew right then and there she needed to join The Big Lake Family! I asked her, she said yes, and the rest, they say, is history!
Dimensions: 8.25" x 5"
Handmade by The Bonnie Potter in Chattanooga, TN. Bonnie's pottery is a work of love. Each piece starts out by having the clay rolled out by a rolling pin, cut to its desired shape, hand pressed with her Gradmother's lace doilies, and then hand formed into the dish shape. Did I mention she then HAND PAINTS the lace design after the piece has been left to dry for a week or two? Simply incredible.
