Raised Platter 02
BY Heami Lee
Based in Seoul, Korea, ceramicist Heami Lee handcrafts elegant and glossy porcelain pieces painted with gold rim or silver. In order to make her Silver Line series, Lee first fires the porcelain piece and then paints it with silver with a brush and fires again at a high temperature. The artisan repeats this process three or four times until she achieves the clear silver color and shimmering effect that she desires. The gleam of the silver may change over time, part of silver’s natural process.
Not microwave, dishwasher, or oven safe. Use a soft scrubber to clean and dry thoroughly. Because it is pure silver, sulfation occurs naturally.
