A perfect size for a sandwich, a piece of cake, or a small salad! But it would also look good on the wall, so on the back I have put two holes for hanging, if a piece of string or wire is attached (not included).
The plate is a celebration of the Aardvark, one of the many small critters that I appreciate: Unassuming, harmless, but busy animals that mind their own business (gardens notwithstanding!).

The plate is 8.5" (21.5 cm.) in diameter.

All my pots are wheel thrown and hand decorated by me. I don't use any stamps or stencils (with a couple of exceptions), everything is painted or drawn freehand. The leaves in this design are created by painting the motif with liquid wax resist on the light blue background color, then painting the darker blue over. The colors are ceramic stains mixed with a white slip (liquid clay) that I make myself. All the decorating is done while the pots are dried, but unfired. After the first firing (bisque), they get a coat of clear glaze and fired a second time to 2200°F (cone 6, or 1204°C).

My pots are food safe, microwave, and dishwasher safe.

A note about shipping cost: It's pretty much impossible to predict cost before knowing where in the world the piece is going, how many pieces will be shipped together, and how big the box will be. I usually ship USPS, which charges extra if the box is over a certain size, not just weight. I double-box everything, so the box might have to be rather large! So I err on the side of caution, but if I charge more than $2 over the actual cost, I refund.
