These beech wood dishes are hand turned and then hand printed with Cathy's illustrations. The design leaves a little of the wood grain exposed which makes rather a wonderful harmony between the natural patterns in the wood and the sensitive colours chosen.
They're finished with 2 layers of our lovely lacquer so they won't pick up stains from oil or food. They're great dishes for tapas, or ornaments on a dressing table for jewellery. They make attractive hostess gifts or thank you presents, and if you start a collection of them you'll see how charmingly they build into a colourful display.
The hand turning creates variations in size and profile, but generally these measure around 13 x 2.6 cm and weigh about 100g. If you look at our listings you'll see two other sizes with other design options.
As we hand print each item to order we like to have at least two weeks to make this for you, but we can usually accommodate rush orders of a few days if necessary. Send us a message with your order telling us when you need it by, or ask us now if you'd like to be sure before ordering. The postage costs are calculated at the checkout, but UK delivery for this item is usually £2.
There's no problem washing them up by hand (we've seen one that's been used and washed more than 500 times), but they shouldn't be put through the dishwasher. The lacquer isn't resilient enough to be exposed to knives at all, and metal spoons or forks can only be used very lightly.
We're finding that some people find too many options overwhelming while other people really appreciate being able to combine their preferred colours and patterns. If you'd like a combination that isn't listed here do drop us a note as we can probably sort it out for you.
