These plates are the perfect size for a snack or dessert, and the color design is a vibrant, yet subtle, yellow splat that will make you smile with each bite.
Each of these plates began as a 1 lb ball of clay that was flattened into a round-ish slab and pressed into a plate form, leaving a uniform indentation surrounded by an organic rim. Once dried to leather-hard, the slab plate was flipped over and a foot ring was added on the wheel to lift your dish off the table and make the plates stack together.
Each plate measures ~7" diameter, and 1" tall.
Medium "Ball" Plate
This piece was made by hand in Houston, TX and fired in an electric kiln to over 2200°F.
It is finished with food-safe glaze and is microwave and dishwasher safe.
We recommend using a coaster under vases and pieces with unglazed bottoms when filled with liquid to protect wood surfaces from condensation.
**Each piece from OCTceramics began as a lump or slab of clay, and through an 11+ step process of shaping, drying, firing (twice!), and glazing, it became a one-of-a-kind object. There may be variations in shape, size, glaze, finish, and color -- but these are what make it special and remind you that this item was 100% made by hand.**
