Our handmade plates are individually made and then decorated with colored slips (liquid clay), syringes, and dipping which gives each it's unique item. Even though we carefully form, glaze and fire each piece in the same manner, variation occurs and gives unique qualities to the piece.
Each of these pieces in made individually, one at a time. Because of the way they are made, each is a unique piece, not only are the shapes unique, the glazes are applied in a way that also renders the piece unique. Additionally, the decorative schema in chosen for each piece as it being formed.
We make these plates and platters with a fine grained white stoneware clay that is designed with some of the same characteristics as porcelain. The glazes are all designed by us in our small studio pottery.
The pieces are covered is a smooth satin glaze in combination with shiney highlights. The glaze safe in the dishwasher and the microwave. It is 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."
Sizes will vary and are listed in the drop down menu.
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.
