Bird plates

Bird plates

Whatever size plate you choose you can be sure they all come with a side helping of chunky! All have thumb indents and of course a bird perched on the edge.  

 

Choose the bird's colour from pink, pale blue, green, yellow, orange or red. All M&L birds come with yellow beaks.

 

These plates are all handmade and the bird is sculpted individually so each will be slightly different in size and style. Remember they are chunky interpretations of birds - not an anatomically correct replica!! 

 

Anyway, once fired the plates are glazed: the bird's body is hand painted in your chosen colour and then the whole piece is dipped in white glaze. The effect on each is unique as the white glaze holds differently each time.  Please refer to the colour flower in the photos for examples of the colours available.

 

The bird-on-the-plate pictured here is the oval dinner plate  in pink.

Getting your perfect piece to you is our priority but as each piece is made to order (we don't hold any pieces in stock), it takes at least three weeks to handmake, fire and glaze each piece of chunky china. That is just a guide though; while we aim for under, three weeks is the norm - it will be worth the wait so if it's four weeks+ please bear with us.

 

Please note that because each piece is unique the design will be different from the one in the picture – similar but unique.

  • Marigold and Lettice: what we are & what we're not

    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.

    Our china is not fine and delicate, it is chunky and full of texture. It is handmade (and homemade) and has a very different look and feel to mass-produced pottery. It'll have thumb prints and markers marks but it is made with love and we hope it brings you joy for many years.
