I've been working with rectangle trays recently. The top two (color) are 9 inches and the bottom one (white-on-white) is about 14 inches. I've made square plates/platters for awhile so it is a nice change to elongate the form. As I think about it this might be the first time I've worked with a rectangle.
I used the dogwood pattern a lot on these but I'm diggin the honeysuckle more. Its asymmetry feels more natural than the others. The next time I make the larger one I'll shrink the pattern increasing the negative space. This will make that left flower seem really lonely over there in the corner, which will call for the food presentation to complete the pot. I like setting up this scenario. I create tension on the form with decoration and the user releases it by arranging the food.
Any thoughts/preferences from the bloggerverse on these?
