Inspired by the 300 Spartan Warriors who sacrificed their lives to defend freedom at the Battle of Thermopylae 2,500 years ago. This wall platter represents the chaos of war, and what the interior of a Spartan shield might have felt like. Joel was inspired to create it after reading, Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield. Steven's harrowing story gave details of what soldiers on the ground would have actually experienced personally during that battle. So Joel glazed this platter with colors and textures to represent the blood, sweat, snot, piss and other gore experience by soldiers in war. The edge is coated in multiple layers of 24 karat gold, to represent the extreme value change of being on one side of the shield or the other. The bottom, exterior side of the platter is bright, blood red. It is signed with the Cherrico Pottery logo and "1/300."
These large wall platters are sculptural. They would make for gorgeous table centerpieces, but are crafted with a foot and bottom to fit flat on a wall safely. It comes with a hanging device and instructions.
