Swimming in the Deep

Here’s what the latest poking, prodding and denting have brought forth.
White Diamond Espresso Cups
sizes range from 2 inches high – 2.5 inches high
capacity 1-2 shots of espresso
I’ve already chosen the two I’m going to keep! 😀 Most tragically, the Bialetti stovetop espresso maker’s gasket has, after 6 years of good service, disintegrated into a sticky mess and I can’t test one of these to see how it works. And Amazon won’t ship the replacement parts here. WHY NOT, AMAZON? These cups were patiently textured, triangle by triangle, for a seemingly geometrical but actually not mathematically sound pattern. Cute and perky, there are 4 of these available!
Rattan Weave Long Platters
9 in x 3.5 in
More of the rattan weave, because it’s beautiful! This time, I’ve shaped long platters with a generous lip so you can use them for food with some gravy. Or stick to sushi rolls and yakitori. Three glazes combine for textural travels. Note: They wobble.
Wandering Elephant Plates
6.25 in diameter
You’ve probably seen these before, but wait! These are bigger! With a beaten textured base! Same same, different size. Something about elephants makes me happy…
Large Rattan Weave Manta Platters
10.5 – 11 inches across
The way the edges curl up remind me of manta rays. The rattan is like from grandfather’s rocking chair, but in reverse, they read out as x’s and o’s. These platters look beautiful just sitting about on a coffee table. One is half green- a delicate light light green- and half white. The other is all white. For some reason, the white plate was really difficult to photograph… maybe the light? – I’ll try again another day.
And finally, some random fish that swam in with the tide… They’ll need some retrofitting before they’re ready for real… wait and see!
and more fish from mooncake molds, just for fun:
Why do I make so many fish? Maybe it’s because a fortune teller once told me I was like a fish swimming in a river. Eventually I’ll reach the sea.
