This light purple plate can be hung on the wall as well as set on the table. It is dishwasher safe BUT NOT microwavable (the hanger is stainless steel). The piece is made of stoneware, first constructed from a slab and then the foot is thrown onto the bottom. There is some rougher texturing in the lower part of the plate by design. It was created to capture the feeling of summer rains about to happen. It is 13 inches from corner to corner.
