Ladybug Childs Dish - Handpainted Porcelain

If your looking for a colorful, original, one of a kind dish for the special grandchild in your life, consider this sweet ladybug. It is fire engine red with big black and white spots! And for the older child in all of us, it makes a perfect size lunch plate for sandwiches or salads. For those who have a country kitchen or enjoy folk art on the walls in their dining room, several of my dishes make a colorful, happy addition.....see my last photo as an example.
This plate began on my wheel with handbuilt additions. 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 strentgh and a nice ring when pinged with your finger. The dish measures 7" across, not counting antenna and is 1 1/4" high.
It is food, dishwasher and microwave safe.
