Limited Series Dragonfly and Bee Plates

 Here is a new creation!  They are the perfect size for dessert or appetizers. 

 I am offering them first to all my Instagram and Facebook followers before I put them on Etsy.  This will be the premier of SUNDAY SPECIAL....  each Sunday I will offer something new or discounted, so be sure to go "LIKE"  my Page on Facebook to see them each week.  Click here to go to the page!

 Each plate is handmade first from a slab of clay, then hand molded.  Next it is fired in a 2000 degree kiln for 8 hours.  Then I glaze the dish and it is fired again to about 1800 degrees for 4 hours.  Next I apply the center decal and hand paint on the design in a 22 K real gold over glaze.  The dish is then fired again to a cone 021 for 9 hours.  Yes there are a lot of steps to create these dishes, but well worth it and at an incredibly low price.

 I have so fallen in love with this Salmon Pink under-glaze!  The bee is wonderful and the gold dots are perfect.  Now, who do you know that would have one!  You can buy one or all 6 or anything in between on Sunday.  The Special is now over, but you can purchase these plates here
