plateDIA120xH80mm, China

A plate for offering, like the bronze bowl featured earlier this week.

The random dotted pattern on the plate was not intention but marks left by plate stacked one over the other, over the glazed and all.  The potter would have to knocked on the plates to release them as they would have been stuck together by the melted glaze.  A crude way of doing pottery but yet giving a special feeling to the object.
