Large square dark shino platter by John Boland, accented with rich glaze brushwork in red, teal, and blue. Shino, is a traditional Japanese glaze with a semi-matte finish that ranges in color from yellow and orange to grey and white. Fired on a stoneware clay, this dark shino glaze has some wonderful variety where the thickness of the glaze determines if it is lighter or darker in its rich burnt orange color, flecked with black. This is a substantial piece of pottery. Strong and heavy, it functions very well for serving a roast at the dinner table, or makes a stunning statement piece for display. John’s beautiful ceramic work has a notable weight and strength, but also reveals a delicacy influenced by Asian aesthetics.
