Mary's Maiolica Arts

Hand Painted Ceramics - Plates

I do a variety of plates in 15th and 16th century styles. I create historical reproductions and original designs that use historical or traditional motifs. I use food safe glazes so my plates are functional as well as decorative.

All the plates on this page were hand painted using commercially made ceramic glazes and underglazes on commercially made ceramic bisque in modern standard sizes.

Historical Recreations
