Ric for platters you can simply set the platter upright on the background and then support it with something heavier from behind. The trick is to set it about 4 to 6 inches behind and use a stick or dowel to prop against the platter. I use a half a brick that has been covered with tape to keep from scratching the back ground. Then I tape a stick or what ever is necessary to prop up the plate. Sometimes you have to tape the stick to the back.
To raise bowls for a set of bowls the best way is to place bowls behind and somewhat to the side of the front bowl. Then set whatever you use for a stand out of sight behind the first bowl.
It depends a lot on what you are using the photos for. To enter Craft shows its best to just use one really niece piece and not a group photo. It's much easier for the judges to see the details in one large piece vs a group of smaller work.
Here is an example of shooting a platter or wall piece using the prop from behind.
