Whether you choose to use this dish to bake a deep dish pizza or your grandmother’s apple pie, or put it on display as a show piece, you will marvel at its elegance. The gentle undulation of the edge give this crystalline creation a delightfully curved form to complement its gorgeous glaze.
Baking in Pottery:
Pottery is wonderful for many kinds of baking, but care must be used to ensure a long life for your dish. Place pottery in room temperature oven before heating, to protect it from extreme temperature shifts and never use with direct heat, such as stove top, campfire, or other open flame. Dishwasher safe, but ensure that the pottery will not shift and crash into another item during the was cycle.
About Bill Campbell’s Unique Crystalline glaze:
Due to the unique chemistry of crystalline glazes, Bill Campbell’s Stellar series evoke a different image to from piece to piece and person to person, which means that no two forms are the same. One piece may evoke an image of creeping morning frost on a window in deep winter, celestial images of nebula, galaxies and star dust in deep space, the stunning growth on a tropical ocean floor, or a geode mysteriously growing in a long forgotten cave. Since the crystalline structure grows independently during the firing process, there is no way for Bill Campbell to control or even know in advance if a given piece will contain an array of tiny crystals like a scattering of diamonds across the form, or large blooms of crystal like the spreading petals of an elegant peony. This amazing unpredictability creates a gleeful anticipation each time we receive new work from Bill Campbell that can only be satiated by a thorough oo-ing and ah-ing over each piece! We hope you will also find yourself inspired with a sense of wonder upon the arrival of your new crystalline pottery.
