Our square plates measure 8 inches across. I think they are the perfect dinner plate (not too big) but also are great serving pieces. Our Silk Road patten was inspired by the ancient trade route that brought trade goods but also knowledge and culture from the far east to Europe in the middle ages. The world would never progressed without the mixing of cultures. The edge and the background are Chinese, the flowers are from ancient designs of Persia, India and Egypt. The small blue flowers are British wildflowers.

These patterns are our most highly decorated and detailed pieces. The are hand thrown and molded. We then paint these with many coats of color. Each flower may have up to 50 paint strokes! They are works of love and are really special.

The painting is inspired by old pottery from many cultures. They aren't copies but inspired by the genius of long gone potters.
