The designs I create suggest ancient Native American designs. I use a technique called "sgraffito" (Italian for "to scratch"). Layers of slip are applied to the clay and then parts are "scratched off" to create contrasting patterns, revealing the clay underneath. These plates are approximately 15" across and are wired for hanging. Each plate is unique - in design and in color. My inventory changes regularly: blue slip on white clay, green slip on red clay, etc. Please send me an email and I can send you photos of what I have in stock right now. These plates are food/dishwasher/microwave safe although most people see them as decorative pieces.
