Buddha Plate - Namaste - Handmade & Painted Zen Dish - Hand Built Pottery - Sandwich, Small Dinner, Hors d'oeuvre - Yoga Teacher Gift
What a peaceful and beautiful word.
It represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us.
It is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another, or, put another way: "The Light in me honors the Light in you".
The "NAMASTE" plate measures about 8 1/2" in diameter and is 1/2" deep. On the inside of the bowl I painted a very simple image of a Buddha and the word NAMASTE. The literal translation of the word "Buddha" is: "To Wake UP" or "To Be Awakened", so with this in mind, on the outside of the dish I painted a Wondrous and deep Yellow, like the rising sun and long awaited new beginnings. It is signed and dated by yours truly.
All of my handmade pottery is painted with lead free/food safe glazes. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, although I do recommend hand washing because my carefully made clay pieces, although very durable, happily deserve a little more love than commercially manufactured ware. Please do not put this in the oven!
This is a good sized dish for serving sides of foods at your table, or a large individual salad, even your yummy sandwich at lunch time and when not in use it can rest in a plate stand as an art piece! It would also make an inspirational and unique gift for anyone, especially your yoga instructor!! :)
