What is a Tondo plate?   Tondo - a Renaissance term for a circular painting or relief.

These small plates are inspired by the circular Tondo paintings of the Renaissance - but with modern approach to the artwork. I think of the rim of the plate as the frame for the inner ceramic art image. 

The plates are all made from a single ball of clay. A disk is thrown on the wheel. Then the image is created in the center. The rim is then pulled and shaped to mimic a traditional picture frame.

Stoneware: 7.0 dia x 1.0h, Cone 6 fired. This is food safe, but made to be displayed. The reverse foot ring has holes for a hanging wire.
