The classic 'Shell Toast Plate'. Approximately 7.25" x 6" x 0.75". They are about 3/16" thick. These are solid plates that are impossible to chip (ok, but don't actually try it) and are made to withstand industrial dishwashers at restaurants. Each plate is handmade so there are little variations from one plate to the next. I love the wabi-sabi quality of the plates, and they're especially adorable when you stack them.
Luscious Porcelain is a local ceramicist who is the darling of the restaurant industry. You may have had the pleasure of using her ceramics at Berlu, Mae, Dame, Langbaan, and several other local restaurants. If you've eaten food off her dishware, you know how special they are. The glaze is a 'wash' and is somewhere between shiny and matte and it has such a pleasant tactile quality. They are very heavyweight but encompass a fragility in their shape. They reflect nature in that they are all almost identical but have slight variations. None of them are perfectly circular, but rather slightly oblong. I affectionately refer to them as 'little beans'.
Colors (from top to bottom of stack)
Mauve: light pink to gray-pink-ish. There's more variation between the mauve dishes than in any other color
Flamingo: Bright, unabashed flamingo pink :)
Yellow: Almost a dull amber or sand
Green: More of a chartreuse, bordering yellow and green
Blue: Sky blue with a hint of green.
Gray: Kind of a brownish-gray, the sort of gray you get when you mix purple and yellow
Order of colors in second photo, clockwise from top left: flamingo, mauve, gray, white, yellow, green, blue.
