This Octopus platter pays homage to the clever creature.  The graceful movements of the Octopus, as it glides and spurts through the water, are reflected in this platter.  The tentacles curl into patterns while it is dotted with a white bead-like glaze that alludes to the octopus suckers. 


The technique for the background is sgraffito, a scratching away of the (black) under glaze to reveal the red clay surface.
