Here's my bald cypress platter fresh out of the kiln; it's 9.75 inches. I painstakingly dabbed glaze in each depression but there may be two little depressions which resisted the glaze.. I've never re fired anything before I might give this one a try. The platter might look better with a darker backdrop. I'm just now unloading the kiln, more later. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
