Pink and gold serving dish - med, large, pedestal
Big enough to make an excellent fruit bowl, perfect for a salad, ideal to take to the table as a serving dish, and bold enough to impress anyone - even if empty!
This limited edition serving bowl is a sight to behold - the outside is Marigold and Lettice's classic think white glaze, the inside is a soft pale pink which is also tinged with white as it gets dipped back into the white glaze before being fired. The effect is unique as the white covers the pink differently each time - sometimes with more white than others, all totally bespoke.
The gold lustre edging is hand-painted on afterwards and then has to go back into the kiln for a third firing - it's a demanding process but worth it for the effects it all gives. Now, because it is handfinished the gold might be thicker in some places than others, we try to avoid any drips but for sure it will be perfectly imperfect and all the better for it!
They might be unique pieces but they are hard working ones too - the gold is suitable to go in the oven and dishwasher, but NOT the microwave!
The medium serving dish has a flat base, the large sits proudly on a slight foot ring and the pedestal one is on.... a pedestal! The top on all of the sizes has an abstract wave to it - not flat but not rolled over. Once again it adds to the uniqueness of the pieces.

Marigold and Lettice pottery
Marigold and Lettice pottery is made to be used, loved and enjoyed; it’s made using sturdy earthenware clay and a thick white glaze. This means it’s hard-wearing and every piece can safely go in the oven, dishwasher, microwave and even the freezer.
Each piece that is made by Marigold and Lettice is totally handmade and a one-off. So, if you see thumb prints in the clay or the glaze that may be thicker in some parts than others, it's because each piece is unique and is what gives our chunky china its specialness, and a different look and feel to mass-produced pottery.
When you first get your chunky china piece you may hear a ‘ping’ - especially the first time the pottery meets with water. If you do, please don’t worry, it's really quite normal and will stop as soon as the glaze/clay settles down together. You may also notice that the bottom of every piece is left unglazed, and this may leave a slight residue on your shelves, but can be easily wiped away with a damp cloth.
Like with all china, over time you may also notice signs of use in the glaze, but these are just signs of the china being well-loved. If this is the case, please be assured, the piece will still be perfectly fine to use.
