Custom Plates, Chargers and Platters from Quaker Arts
Quaker Arts Llc produces custom plates, chargers (lay plates), and platters. Each is drawn by hand with meticulous attention to detail. They are then glazed and fired in a kiln to a temperature of approximately 1600 degrees.
These ceramic pieces can be used for everyday ware, as place settings for formal occasions, and for serving meals, cheeses, cruditÃ©s, etc.
