cicada serving pieces

from 75.00

Early in the summer a cicada flew up on my front porch and stayed. I brought it inside and made a series of drawings to use in my work. As I started exploring cicadas as a symbol, drawing them, playing with them on my own work, I realized that they resonated with more people than just me- they are a symbol of music, of rebirth, longevity, creativity, metamorphosis, and communication- as well as being an ever-present sound of the Southern summer.

I am offering these footed handbuilt platters in a few formats. All are oven and food safe, made from strong creamy porcelain, stains, and food-safe clear gloss glaze. The platter with the molded cicada handles is 13” x 7” x 2” and is made to order. The platters with the cicada pair- available in 16x7x2 and 13x7x2, blue only- are hand-painted with sgraffito (carved away to provide relief) details. I have one each in stock.

For custom orders, please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.
