These unique dishes can be used as a trinket dish or spoon rest or even a tea bag holder! It measures approximately 6 inches across and 2 1/2 inches wide. The NC shape sits on 3 small feet to raise it a bit off the counter or tablet. It is made from Stoneware from Asheville NC and glazed in a variety of glazes and fired in a 2200 degree ceramic kiln. The finished product is food safe and is safe to be put in the microwave or dishwasher. Each dish is handmade and shaped, so no 2 will be exactly the same. Some bow up a bit more, some have a bigger belly and some will be flatter. They are all unique!
