“The Meadow Plate range is inspired by the floral spectacle of beautiful wildflowers found in fields and forests, surrounding my home in the County Antrim countryside. Each piece has a relief floral sprig - made from a real local flower - individually applied to the surface. The surface design aims to forever capture those peaceful meadow moments; to be kept and used at home. I often want to bring the outside-in, so I made this range as a small snap-shot of the beauty we can find locally.

Each piece is handmade from a rich, earthy terracotta clay and every surface is glazed with a crisp, white tin glaze; creating a beautiful contrast against the red ceramic. The clay is a smooth earthenware body which transforms from dark brown when greenware to light orange after bisque then finally a deep terracotta red after the final firing.

Every dish is handmade using traditional hand-building skills starting with a slab of clay, which is formed over a drape mould to shape the piece. My floral sprigs are made from moulds I’ve produced from locally sourced flowers. Applying each sprig is a delicate and fiddly process as they can distort easily. The piece is dried slowly before it’s fired to 1000 °C, where the clay is first changed to ceramic. I apply the glaze and fire the ceramic for its last time where the surface transforms into a shiny, opaque white."

Care instructions

M E A D O W P L A T E S
Dishes are made from an earthenware terracotta clay & glazed with a white tin glaze, which is food safe. The reverse of these plates are unglazed. Hand wash only. Plates are suitable for everyday use or display. Sudden temperature change can thermally shock the plates. Grease can stain unglazed terracotta if left unwashed.

S T U D E A R R I N G S
Stud earring backs are surgical steel. Each pair is packaged in a pillow box.

D E C O R A T I O N S
Please keep the box supplied to store it when not in use. The sleeve around the box secures the lid too.

I add extra wadding in each box for decorations to help them travel better - if you post the item again please include the extra wadding to avoid breakages.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Please send me a message if your item is a gift and you would like a personalised message included.

Orders do NOT include order receipts - these are available digitally - let's be conscious of our waste and cut down on the unnecessary.

Ceramics is hard to ship safely, so reusable bubble wrap may be used when necessary (but this is rare), otherwise recycled/recyclable & biodegradable materials are used for packaging.

Shipping

I can arrange local delivery if you prefer not to have your item posted - please get in touch as I'm happy to reduce the carbon footprint of your order. Please be aware of local travel restrictions due to covid.

All orders are shipped with Royal Mail 1st Class Post. If you need your shipping upgraded to Tracked, Signed For or Next Day - please send me a message to arrange a quote.

Custom and personalised orders

I'm more than happy to work with you for any custom or personalised items! Send me a message with your ideas and I will get in touch.

Please note that ceramics is a very time consuming craft with each piece requiring at least 2 firings (one firing can take up to 48hrs!) I'm also a 1 woman business and fulfill all orders myself, so this can affect the time frame of your order.

Bulk Orders

If you need more than what is in stock on my Etsy then send me a message for a discount.
