I'm the first to admit I am not a professional potter, but I'm not going to say it's a hobby, it's a craft and I love it... I like working in black clay at the moment, it's as if it has a life of it's own even without a glaze - so I like to leave spaces clear of glaze. Just that little plate/bowl can be used for jewerly, pressed incense or dipping sauce at the table!? dimensions approx. 3.5" x 1"
