Baby Lamb Childs Dish - Handpainted Porcelain

This plate began on my pottery wheel. After shaping and trimming, I used slip to outline the baby lamb features and fleece. Then three coats each of food safe underglazes were painted on and the piece bisque fired. Afterwards, I painted three coats of a clear glaze over all and refired the piece to 2243 degrees F for strength and a nice ring when pinged with your finger. The dish measures 7 1/2" across and 1 1/2" high.
It is food, dishwasher and microwave safe. What child wouldn't enjoy eating his/her food to get to see this sweet baby lamb face! When not being used for food, it makes a nice folk art wall hanging for a nursery.....a thoughtful baby gift.
