This set of leaf dishes are 100% handmade using a red bud leaf from my property. The dishes are shallow and made from paper clay the perfect size to hold rings, coins, earrings or a small collection of crystals, shells, etc. They are approx. 2 3/4 inches at their widest point and about 2 3/4 inches at their longest point. They may loosen up if left for long periods of time in a humid environment but should stiffen back up after a few days when put back in a dry environment. They are not perfect and are not meant to be. I use a more organic approach when making items with paper clay it's part of my natural style as an artist, imperfections are expected and part of the personality of the piece. Not recommended for outdoor use. Decor purposes only. They are not food or liquid safe.I used paper clay, real natural leaf from nature, acrylic paint and 2 coats of protective clear gloss spray.
