Hand Painted Color Block Style 11 inch Plate

Regular price$225.00

Choose a background color

Based on a commission from a client for dinner plates with the family pets painted on them, we are pleased to introduce an 11 inch earthenware plate with a new solid "color block" background.

This style features a single pet's portrait framed by a matching solid rim accented by thin black trim on the edges. Use them for decorative accents or as chargers on the table. They measure 11 inches in diameter about 1 1/2 inches being the rim edge. Hand wash for best results.

To order choose a color for the background (or contact us for other options) and upload your images and/or enter a description and any personalizing.

Please allow 3-4 weeks for the creation of your custom 11 inch rim edge plate. Due to the nature of the process, we cannot provide a roof before painting. Contact us if you have any questions about these very special pieces.

Behind the Art

Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved horses and dogs and painting. After college, she was painting horses and dogs on everything from jean jackets to cowboy boots to ceramic tile murals and in 1989 M. K. Zeppa Studios was born.

That little girl was me...M. K. (short for Melissa Kaye) Zeppa... and I still paint every ceramic piece and custom pet portrait the studio produces.

As the studio grew, we developed a line of digitally decorated items that feature reproductions of my paintings on note cards, beverage coasters, mugs etc.  We have built a huge digital library of breeds (over 250) and we add to it every year. Why so many? Because you ask for them!

All the items are produced in house in our Southwestern Virginia studio, to order. We only warehouse blank "canvases" and that means you can create, with our help, exactly what your heart desires. You can get your dog (or cat or horse) on it!
