Unique Gift for Wedding, Anniversary, Retirement, or Any Special Occasion

Lace Tray made with handmade Italian 
Wedding Lace

When I first started working with clay I had some "big" ideas about projects I wanted to try.  This tray was one of them.  It is a favorite piece for me to create and I am always surprised with the results.  These trays are made by impressing wedding lace and then individually glazing each and every petal.   They are wonderful as a wedding gift, anniversary present, retirement, or just to have and to enjoy.

These are wonderful for any season.  I have created this in fall these, spring, summer, and even in winter shades using wonderful pastels.

It takes me about 2 hours to glaze a single tray.  Some of my pottery friends think I am "nuts" to make these, but I just keep making them.  I love how the lace appears after the final firing.

 Yes, these are not your average pottery run.  There are normally an average of 4 runs per tray to achieve the final result.


  1. Greetings Lori! Great to hear from you and nice to see that you are still "firing away" :-) Great looking pieces you have here. Best of success to your daughter at school, especially in science - you should be a big help in that department!

  2. Thanks Michael, hope all is well in the great North East. My daughter surpassed by scientific knowledge base a LONG time ago! It is so impressive what today's kids are doing. Be well, L
