This hand built tray has a white dove perched on the rim, and a beautiful crocheted lace pattern pressed into the clay on the underside. I used a black underglaze with white, which gives great contrast. The top is glazed in Cloud, which is a moody, modern lavender gray with blue flecks. The tray is 5" X 4", and 1 1\/2" H. It sits on 3 round feet, allowing you to see a hint of the lace pattern where the rustic edges curl up.

The white dove is a traditional wedding icon. Doves mate for life and work equally as a team. The new couple builds the nest and even shares sitting on the eggs. In ancient Greek and Roman cultures, the groom would give a dove to the bride, symbolizing his promise to help care for her and for the family as a full equal.

I would be happy to make sets as wedding favors- just send me a convo! And the celebration of peace, harmony and equality in a home makes this small treasure perfect for many occasions, or as a way to have the dove watch over your own home.

All of my glazes are formulated for maximum durability, and this piece will be as rich and glossy 100 years from now. I offer complimentary gift wrapping if you like, and always enclose a studio card that lets you know it is dishwasher, oven, and microwave safe. My commitment to environmentally friendly practices is detailed in my Public profile, if you are interested.

GIFT BUYERS: If you want the gift sent to an address other than your own, please add that address to your PayPal account. Also, tell me how to address the card in 'message to seller' as you check out. Your gift will be beautifully hand wrapped.

Thanks for your interest!
