Tanabata Serving Dish
These beautiful ceramic dishes are handmade and wood fired in the UK by veteran potter Lisa Armour-Brown. Each piece when it comes out of the kiln has subtle differences in flashing, light ash deposits and glaze, all dependent upon how the flame has passed by and between the work. Tanabata is the Japanese festival of star crossed lovers, separated by the Milky Way and allowed to meet but once a year, reflected in the starry glaze. The unusual firing in a wood kiln also gives the dishes a contrasting raw, scorched base.
Measures approx. 22 cm in diameter. Each piece is individually handcrafted so small variations in colour, shape and size will occur depending upon where in the kiln the piece was fired. Designed to be used daily, the piece is dishwasher safe but to keep it at its best we recommended that you hand-wash after use.
