Thin to the point of translucency, this piece fits into what is often categorized as "fine china", referring to both the porcelain clay body as well as a thin-ness rarely achieved with hand-thrown processes.
My hearty congratulations go to Vince Nguyen of Portland for his dedication in creating JolieLaide. I am providing these plates for his new space opening early this summer, to augment his collection of my dinner plates.
Vince wanted a small-scale and very delicate porcelain dish, so I resolved some technical challenges and brought this forth for him. Measuring 6" by about 5" by about 3/4" tall but weighing less than half a pound, this piece is best suited to a kitchen that can take care of the work. Incidentally, I do not recommend stacking them quite as tall I as I have for the photo, and I can't promise their durability in an industrial washer. Also, the foot is burnished and sanded but un-glazed, a necessary deviation from my standard work.
