DIMENSIONS: 8" w. x 10" l. x 2" h. Shown: Ava Green Tri Color glaze
The Victoria tray is a personal favorite. The pattern is found on a piece of ceiling tin collected on a road trip along Route 66 in Arizona. I was traveling with my future wife, on our first trip together. The purpose of the trip was to bring my stored studio items from Eugene Oregon to New Orleans. I had been hired to teach ceramics at Tulane University, and was ready to drop anchor. I am now 15 years in the Crescent city and going strong. I grew up in Redlands California, right next to San Bernardino, which figures prominently in the lyrics of the epic song, Route 66. The stretch of the Mother Road that ran through San Bernardino is known today as Foothill Boulevard.
Serving trays are made with the same patterns we source for our tile line. Mostly these are pressed tin ceiling panels I have collected over the years. Soft clay slabs are embossed with pattern then draped over forms to stiffen. The resulting piece offers the best of both worlds – a “tile” with volume to hold and contain your favorite things.
