Large Platters by Gemma Orkin: This is our first exclusive collection of ceramic tableware by renowned South African artist Gemma Orkin and we’re delighted to bring this new range of platters to you. Inspired by life, love and relationships, Gemma’s often humorous work reflects the colours, miracle and magic of nature. Animals, birds, people and the abundant flora of the Cape are all reflected in her stunning work and each high-fired stoneware piece is hand made and hand painted by Gemma herself. Gemma builds her ceramic pieces up in coils- no moulds or wheels are used in the lengthy creative process.
The platters are perfect for savouries: try piles of saffron rice, pistachios and mixed herbs or a big buckwheat and rice salad with hazelnuts and pomegranate. And they’re great for puds too: use our platters for serving chocolate and pecan cookies or meringues with praline cream and fresh figs.
As this is a hand painted item each and every piece is unique and only one of each design is available. These pieces are made to mix and match- collect one of each design and create your own stylish collection.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss creating your own bespoke collection.
Gemma’s platters make ideal birthday and Christmas gifts and are frequently bought as wedding presents too.
