Don Sheil’s 16″ Bowl Platter is more than slightly majestic. Designed as an impressive centre piece, it turns heads with its functional yet stylistic presence. This is definitely a gift to impress – think memorable birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and corporate presentations especially the Flowering Gum creating reminiscent memories of Australia.
AN impressive piece sized at 380mm in diameter and 70mm high and weighing 900gm.
Australia is surrounded by ocean and artists have struggled to capture the fluid movement of the ever changing water, sand and light patterns.
Don Sheil has succeeded with spectacular results represented in the Swirl pattern which has evolved to become an enduring favourite in the Don Sheil range.
Many of the designs have been inspired by nature’s textures and patterns, so, as in nature, no two pieces will be exactly alike, and variations characteristic of handcrafting may be apparent.
The Swirl pattern is acid etched and anodically finished. Collectors appreciate this, and although an item will be greatly admired, it is also designed to be used.
The Sheil range continues to maintain this tradition of excellence established over many years, creating versatile, enduring designs, perfect for today’s lifestyle.
Made from a unique alloy, each item has the enduring beauty of silver without the drawbacks. It will not tarnish or impart a metallic taste, nor will it be affected by salad dressing, mustard or wine. It may be put in the freezer or taken straight from the oven to the table.
Each piece in the Sheil Collection carries the Don Sheil trademark which is Don’s signature and hand engraved, which ensures its authenticity and originality. Mark Sheil is now the master craftsman, and is continuing the tradition of excellence, which distinguishes these pieces as collectors items.
