Minty green and lilac checkered cake tray made by Marina Lespérance Lopez in Montreal, Canada. The designs are inspired by vintage cake designs. This collection is made with checkered colored clay to make the body of the piece, and whipped colored clay in a pastry bag to make the decorations. Ideal for 5-6 inches cakes. Note that there is a slight bum in the middle from the plater synking a little bit in the firing. Unnoticeable when there is a cake on in. Slighty higher than his sister ''checkered cake stand #1''
Mid-range porcelain, ceramic pigments, shiny semi-transparent milky glaze and real gold.
This cake stand could be used inverted also! Use you imagination! Beautiful inside and out!
Hand wash gently without abrasive to keep the gold shiny longer. My pieces do not go in the microwave. Handmade ceramics are fragile by nature, they should be treated with the same care as your fanciest wine glasses.
Due to the complexity of making a straight checkered pattern there are some imperfections in this platter. They are not flaws that limit normal use of the plater. The dimensions given are approximate and can vary slightly. Each object is hand builded without the use of a potter wheel, and are never perfectly symmetrical. My pieces are all one of a kind functional artworks, and I favor artistic complexity over technical perfection. I produce the imagery on my pieces with multiple successive layers of colored porcelain, stoneware and minerals, so it is normal to perceive textures, small holes or separations between colors, or micro cracks in the frosting. Minimal flaws are to be expected. If there are more significant flaws that affect the function, the piece will be classified as ‘’seconds’’ and will be 50% off. If the flaw affects the beauty of the piece it will be marked as second and be 20% or 30% off. Please look at the images carefully as the imperfections are not hidden.
