The love heart birthday plate is a fabulous celebration of a birthday with its mass of multicoloured hearts and personal inscription.
The plate is covered in tiny hearts in nine different colours making a vibrant, bright background design for the personalised inscription that goes around the rim. This wording is based on the well-known song 'Happy Birthday to you' and has the birthday person's name added to the lyrics, for example, '.....Happy Birthday dear John.....'
You can also specify a message of up to ten words to be painted on the back of the plate. This could include a date, who the plate is from or a short message. All the lettering is painted using upper and lower case letters as appropriate.
Each love heart 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. Due to 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.
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!
