Hare in the Moonlight Plates, 4 sizes available
Hare in the Moonlight is a new design of tableware, a part of the Irish Nocturnal Animals' range. As there are only a few larger mammals living in Ireland nowadays, it's interesting that most of them roam mostly at night. Catching a glimpse of a hare staring at the moon is magic! adapted to share their habitats with humans. Many of us, urban dwellers, have a fox for a neighbour, and they can be frequently spotted walking around city streets on late evenings and early mornings.
The plates are made of white porcelain clay and intricately decorated with black and coloured slips for striking contrast. In addition to the visually busy design, layers of decoration can be felt under your fingers, which adds to the tactile experience when using these pieces.
Plates can be purchased as wall plates (with hook for hanging) or functional plates (select option at check out).
The decoration is applied by hand. Both sides of each piece are painted by layering colours and revealing design elements with paper resist stencils. While all design elements are there, each piece has a slightly different layout.
I like to think these piece will be used frequently; they are fired to very high temperature, made using high quality clay and glaze and meant to last. They are dishwasher and microwave safe. Because porcelain clay does not like sudden temperature changes, please, do not use these in the oven.

S (larger saucer)- 15.5cm
M (canape size) - 20.5cm
