This gorgeous ceramic plate is full of bright, cheerful color! Keep it on the mantel as a decoration, or take it down and use it for candy, fruit, or whatever comes to mind.

Each individual item is hand made with ceramic clay. Once complete it is placed in an oven at temp. 1000°C until hardened. Each piece is then hand painted using metallic and oxidized paint in order to keep its natural color.
Again it is returned to the oven at the same temperature and finished with fine glazing.
