Medium Sized Plates from the Hobnob Collection
Our handmade plates are individually thrown on the potter's wheel and then decorated with colored slips (liquid clay), followed by a second firing. Then, using syringes, and a combination of dipping and pouring the glazes, we develop a unique and organic feeling on the surface before the third firing.
There is a wonderful depth and richness created by the use of so many techniques and tools to glaze the work. Even though we carefully form, glaze, and fire the pieces in a similar manner, wonderful variations occur giving unique qualities to each piece.
We make these plates with a fine grained white stoneware clay that is designed with some of the same characteristics as porcelain. The glazes and slips are all carefully designed by us in our small studio pottery which allows us to develop the surface qualities and interactions that we like to work with.
The piece is covered in a smooth satin glaze in combination with shiny highlights and microcrystalline surfaces. The glazes are safe in the dishwasher and the microwave. They are safe and suitable for use with food.
We completely understand the importance of a well crafted and detailed piece. We also understand that folks really do appreciate nice looking objects and we strive to make our pieces both fully functional and "easy on the eye."

Remember that because of the handmade nature of the process, some variations should be expected. The quality is always the same standard that LickinFlames is known for, but some variations in color, design element placement and decoration patterns needs to be allowed. We know you will love the piece that is shipped.
