The process of commissioning a complete set of dishes was very simple, and after explaining what colors and shapes she was looking for, along with some inspiration from Pinterest, they settled on eight plates, eight bowls, eight cups, and six coffee cups. Williams made recommendations on sizing, glazing and even the shape of the coffee mug handles. “The way it feels to hold the coffee cup was a big deal for my husband, who is a coffee cup connoisseur.” Murphy says. “I know it sounds like it isn’t a big deal, but if these are going to be lifelong cups, it was important to us.”
Williams then got to work creating her little works of art. “When she delivered the completed set, she had inspected each dish so well, making sure any issues were swapped out with another piece.” Murphy says. “Her attention to detail is amazing! I feel like we have one of a kind artwork to eat eggs off of each morning. We are so happy with our dishes, I’ve actually just ordered smaller salad plates to add to our set!”
When purchasing a new set of dishes, especially ones we plan on using for a lifetime, most of us look at the care instructions. Is it dishwasher safe? What about microwavable? “I was so happy to hear that all her pottery is dishwasher and microwave safe,” says Murphy. “Of course, handwashing is always ideal if you want to preserve something the longest, but dishwasher safe is a must.” For those of you who are interested in ordering your own complete set of handmade ceramic dishes, just send an email to Turntable Pottery: email@example.com or her send Williams a message on Instagram.
