CRAFT – Runner-up 2020

Horse Hair Raku Plate

by Aries Earth Pottery

Made in Caroline

$175 to $250

First fired in an electric kiln, the second firing in the raku kiln gives these plates their name and distinct look — the potter applies horsehair to the red-hot dish, leaving a permanent carbon mark. Once accented with willow or dogwood branches, the decorative plates serve as a custom keepsake or memorial for a beloved equine companion.
