Birds, bees, beetles, dragonflies … even spiders and snakes. There’s a surprise waiting to be uncovered when you use this large oval ceramic platter ($425) for the family turkey. Original black line drawings are transferred to white earthenware and subtly highlighted by color — light blue, pine green, or iron buffalo (pictured) — along the rim. The one-of-a kind platter will become an item to be passed on through the generations. Made by Laura Zindel Ceramics in Guilford, Vermont. 802-254-8930. zindelceramics.com
