My Leaf Trinket Dishes are made using real Budleja leaves, Fatsia Leaves, Sycamore Leaves or Horse Chestnut Leaves. They are available in 4 colour ways: rustic green with speckling (Horse Chestnut Design); fresh green in porcelain (Fatsia Leaf Design); Autumn Red with silver/grey lustre edging (Sycamore Design); or speckled white with gold lustre detailing (Budleja Design).
Firstly, I press a real leaf into clay which leaves an impression. Then I form the shape into a curved functional dish. I use porcelain and a wide firing buff clay to make the different designs, and depending on the final colour variation I fire the piece between 1055 – 1260 degrees. This allows different colours to mature in the kiln depending on the glaze recipe. The third firing allows either platinum or gold lustre to mature on the edges, enhancing the attractive shape of the leaves.
I use my own Leaf Trinket Dish to collect loose earrings and rings on my dressing table. They are also perfect as attractive ornaments in their own right, for candle tea light holders or condiment dishes for butter or olives on your dining table.
Dimensions: typically 13-15 cm x 16-18 cm leaf face with a curve depth of approx. 2-6 cm depending on shape. The White Budleja design is much longer, approximately 22 cm long and 10 cm wide.
Please hand wash carefully in order to retain the integrity of the lustre on edges. All glazes are food safe.
