In case you've not so far read, I make all of my pieces entirely by hand - and in this case, that included the slapping into a thin piece. But I find something peaceful and organic about the imprints left behind; proof that these were made by SOMEONE, not a machine. Who could resist immortalising this in a "handy-work" dish? This dish sports a raw, unglazed surface, don't spill your red wine here ;)
These dishes can be used for almost anything: a salt dish, jewellery like rings, brooches, or earrings, for your bits and bobs that are otherwise lost in the carpet and under the furniture!, your keys, medications, or anything else that takes your fancy :)
Hand-built from white Earthenware clay, these pieces have been sculpted, carved, glazed and twice fired to ensure you a piece that will be a piece to last for generations (if looked after carefully throughout its life).
Made to order, the dish in this listing measures approximately: 13cm across... ...and can be made in a variety of colours! Please message me to get your custom piece started!
** Other sizes are available to order. Please message me with the size you're after **
Hours of love are poured into my pieces, and I hope that they bring you as much joy as they bring me. Thank you for supporting my dream <3 Bek x
NOTES: * "Made To Order": These pieces are genuinely made to order, which means that they are NOT sitting here ready to go. Instead, once an order is placed, I will confirm all of the details with the buyer BEFORE beginning their new heirloom. That's right: I will make it for you specifically. This means that your piece truly is bespoke and one of a kind.
The making process involves: Clay prep Sculpting/building Semi drying Further Sculpting Total drying Firing Decorating Final Firing As you can see, there are many stages involved in bringing your piece to life, and as a general rule, I like to allow FOUR TO SIX WEEKS for creation to ensure you're never disappointed. If the weather is warmer, the drying time may be quicker and thus your piece will be ready sooner. But better to have it EARLY than for me to underestimate and you receive your new piece LATE ;)
* Shipping: The shipping estimate of 4-6wks allows for the construction time of your chosen piece/s. (See above). Once your piece is complete, it will be carefully packed and sent on its way to you within 48 business hours. * Customising: I offer to customise some of my designs as per your heart's desire, but this isn't available for all pieces. Please be kind if you are ordering a custom piece <3 I'm only human <3
