This dish is formed using a piece of wood carving as a press for the outside edge image. I use a soap form to press the inner image since soap does not stick to the clay. The dark cobalt blue glaze is beautiful as it bleeds brown over the texture. These are also great for just a small dish at the table for butter, or for a jewelry holder. Note: more than one of these will fit in a flat rate box in the event you need to order multiples for Christmas. These are always available in our store in Virginia City.
