Details

Two whimsical whales happily swim through the sea in this sweet handcrafted decorative ceramic plate. Designed by Mexican artisan Maria Isabel Cruz, the plate is made using the centuries-old dry rope technique, in which a wax mixture made of magnesium oxide and fat are applied to the outlines of the image or motif prior to glazing. The wax mixture creates a barrier that keeps the different fill colors in the design separate during firing, before burning off to reveal the blackened ceramic beneath. The plate can be hung on a wall for display via the nylon cord on the back.

"Love It!!"

Even more adorable than the picture on line. The colors are beautiful and it looks lovely in my blue/ beige bathroom. What a pleasure to have the nylon cord in place for hanging.

"So fun and whimsical!"

I have ordered eight of Marias plates and have been so very pleased with each one. When I receive the other four tomorrow, I intend to create a grouping. They are all so fun and I cant help but smile when I see them. Many thanks to Maria and to Novica! I highly recommend Marias work.

"Beautiful Art"

I bought this and 3 other plates from Marie on the same day. This piece will go into my 2nd bedroom which is decorated with whale art from around the world. This piece indeed offers a little whimsey.
