I've been making plate sets this week.

They are up-cycled plates and quite charming with tea and cookies. Sometimes I just hate making plates and things out of fresh clay because once you fire the clay in a kiln, it will never go back into the Earth. Firing clay changes the molecular structure to the point that it will not hold water again (unless you go through a very exhaustive, expensive process) so taking existing plates from a flea market that no one really wants and reviving them is incredibly refreshing.
