Cream Georgiana Cake Plate

John Wheeldon
Cream Georgiana Cake Plate, by Derbyshire-based ceramicist John Wheeldon, is a modern interpretation of a classic Stilton plate unearthed in a Royal Doulton product catalogue dating back to 1801. Inspired by traditional 18th century creamware designs, John has manufactured his own tools based on examples of those typically used in Britain at that time. The imprint of his roulette wheel creates the collection's signature design motif.

John throws the main body of the piece on the wheel, using press-moulds and extrusions to create the handle, spout and lid. The piece is bisque fired to 1120°C and decorated with transparent lead-free glaze, which has been hand-mixed with blends of coloured stains.
