Each cheese plate is first thrown as a flat disc on the potter's wheel, before being cut into a rectangular shape, and with a circle cut to allow the piece to be hung. It is then dried in the Alentejo sun before being first fired. It's then dipped in white clay, glazed and then fired a second time. The pottery is family-owned and has been in business for over 200 years.
‘Perfectly imperfect’ - some marks in the glaze are natural and expected, as is some crazing. This will not affect the use or durability of the pieces.
Handmade in Portugal
Care: All pottery must be washed before first use in hot soapy water, rinsed well and allowed to air dry. To maintain the integrity of the pieces (i.e., colour, glaze), dishwasher use is not recommended.
