An original, handmade porcelain butter or cheese dish (plate and lid) that was wheel-thrown, and a perfect size for keeping a stick of butter or cheese out on the table. A whimsical image of lemons is carved into the surface using a technique that originated in Korea known as mishima, in which I incised the drawing into leather-hard clay and then inlayed a black slip (liquid clay) into the illustrated lines. The fruit and leaves are then hand-painted on. A clear glaze is applied over the entire piece, except for the base.
Dimensions: This dish is perfect for serving butter or cheese at the table. Dimensions for the plate are approximately 6.5 inches (16.5 cm) diameter at the rim and 1 inch (2.5 cm) tall. Dimensions for the lid are approximately 3.5 inches (9 cm) diameter tall, including the handle, and 5 inches (13 cm) diameter.
** Locally supplied fine porcelain clay and glazes
** Glazes used are food-safe
** Microwavable and dishwasher proof (although hand-washing is recommended to prolong the life of the piece)
** Suitable for both cold or hot contents
Please note: Handmade ceramic wares by their very nature are unique, inconsistent and may have some imperfections that do not detract from the beauty and function of the piece. Instead, these are indications of the maker's hand and I encourage you to embrace them. If multiple quantities of this piece is available, they may be similar but they won't be identical, as each one of them is individually made.
Please send me a message if you'd like to enquire about ordering multiple quantities, to order this piece in another of my botanical designs, or to order this lemon design on another of my wheel-thrown forms.
