It's true. The plate is 7" x 7" x 1.5". It is completely functional but also has holes in the foot to string cord through if you'd rather display it on the wall.
Each piece is wonkily handbuilt. If you are looking for a pristine piece of handmade ceramics then this is not it! It is built securely but with character. It is food and microwave safe, but I would recommend lovingly hand-washing it. Each piece is one of a kind, made out of earthenware clay and painstakingly sgraffito-ed with goofy imagery.
