Bold, bright and colourful, the Beach Hut plates with their unique flavour of the English sea-side make perfect gifts - for almost any occasion!
Beach Hut Plates make wonderful gifts for new babies, couples, family and friends of all ages. Because they can be personalised to your wishes, they make superb presents for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, christenings, retirement and practically any other celebratory event.
The design reflects the unique atmosphere and colour of the English sea-side and the famous Suffolk resort of Southwold in particular. You can capture this wonderful atmosphere with one of these plates at a much lower price than actually buying a beach hut! Bargain!
Each Beach Hut Plate is individually hand-painted to order. Many ceramic products that you can buy and that are advertised as 'hand-painted' are actually produced using transfers. Each ceramic piece that I sell really is individually hand-painted. As a result, all my pieces are slightly different and therefore unique. Because of their exclusively hand-made nature, they take a full five days to produce, each piece having two painting stages and up to three firings in the kiln.
There are two designs, one of which can only accomodate a name, whilst the other has room for a short greeting as well. There are two sizes, the small plate is 22cm in diameter and the large plate is 26cm in diameter. The message on the base can be up to ten words, all the lettering is painted using upper and lower-case letters.
Each item is beautifully packaged in a special brown cardboard box, tied up with string and labeled with the name of the person who will be receiving it. Because you will almost certainly want to inspect your plate before passing it on as a gift, the packaging has no glue or tape and can easily be opened up and re-closed. The box will still look as unique and beautifully designed when the gift is opened as when it was first delivered.
These plates are made from earthenware clay, painting and glazing in lead free glazes.
My pottery is not oven or microwave safe. Each item is technically dishwasher proof but I cannot accept responsibility for cracks in the glaze that a hot wash may cause.
Please check the spelling of names that are to be painted on your order very carefully. It is not possible to rectify mistakes afterwards!
