Consider this Lion King dish for the grandchild, child, or older child in each of us for a colorful and fun, perfect size luncheon plate.....OR.....for those who enjoy folk art on their walls!
This plate began on my wheel with handbuilt additions. Slip was painted on to give the lion's mane a shaggy dimension. 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 1/4" across is 1 3/4" high, which is perfect for a big bowl of soup or chili too.
It is food, dishwasher and microwave safe.
