These beech wood dishes are hand turned and then hand printed with Cathy's illustrations. The design is created by leaving a little of the wood grain clear 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, perhaps on a dressing table for your 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. There are seven different designs for your selection in this size, plus more in the other sizes.
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 on this item is usually £2.
The hand turning creates slight variations in size and profile, but generally they measure around 9 x 2 cm and weigh around 50g.
There's no problem washing them up by hand (my niece has 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.
We make them using Cathy's wonderful hand printing process. It's an adaptation of the screen printing process so it produces impressively rich colours and sharp definition. We hope you agree they all feel beautifully hand crafted.
