Crocheted Doily swoopy square plate (Marie style; 5.5 inch)
The perfect size for a dessert plate, this square cutie holds a few cookies, a slice of cake, or a small slice of pie. It could also be used as a soap dish, a catch-all for keys and change, or for paperclips and ephemera around a desk. Slab-rolled and impressed with a hand-crocheted doily (thank you, Marie!), these pieces are then trimmed, cut, and shaped into beautiful one-of-a-kind plates - each one is subtly different, as they are made by hand.
These dishes are glazed with non-toxic glazes, and can be washed with hot soapy water or even run through the dishwasher in order to be cleaned. Each one is made by hand, slab-rolled, impressed, and hand-cut; while the glaze colors remain the same from firing to firing, the placement of the design may change from dish to dish and your dish may be slightly different than photographed. As they are hand-built, each one is a little bit different as far as height and weight go, but the approximate dimensions are listed below:
Approximate Height: 1 inch
Approximate Size: 5.5 x 5 inches
Approximate Weight: 8 ounces
HaldeCraft ceramics begin life as slip-cast, hand-built, or wheel-thrown pieces and then are painted and glazed and put out into the world, all by the hands of one person. I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make incorporate now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio with confidence, mindfulness, and joy.
