this small dish is approx 14cm across and each letter is hand stamped letter by letter...

the poem is by kylie johnson © and reads :

i watched you
a perfect whole with a flimsy heart
& dreams of paper planes and pyramids

i borrowed your smile for the weekend
made truth of big places in this small town

and no longer watched my footsteps as i walked....

please note this order will take between 3-4 weeks to make and send as we make to order (it could be sooner if we have in stock)

as it will be made to order and with this means it will look slightly different but will match as close as possible.

when ordering unless otherwise requested the text will be coloured with a dark indigo blue (this is the sample one done in brown)

other colour available is an inky brown

the piece is made by a high fired earthenware and has a clear gloss glaze.

the vessel is good safe but we suggest hand washing and not soaking the vessel for any length of time in water.
