Impressed Plates


A triangular ceramic plate made to sit in the hand as you chat with a glass. The perfect size for a buffet or for canapé when entertaining a crowd or of course a little dessert to go with your cocktails and the larger plate perfect for serving or a sit-down meal


Impressed Plates

The creation starts with a flat piece of clay which has been textured front and back with wallpaper patterns. Then a bright wash of colour is applied before the finish with a food safe glaze. The triangular shape has softly rounded edges so that they will easily sit in your hand.

As the mother of two boys, 8 and 5,  I still dream of Saturday afternoon cocktail parties sipping margaritas.  So I try to design pieces to fit the current realisation of that dream.

“The Impressed Plate trio are designed to fit snugly in your hand as you mingle at the best parties and not budge even if you have to suddenly leg it after a small mischievous boy. So even if I am chatting with my cocktail buddies and I quickly need to zip into mama mode, I want my plate and my drink to ease there with me”

These latest editions to the Impressed Range are available in blue deco, ruby damask and the green seeds surface patterns and colours.

Each piece is carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and a branded gift box before wrapping for post to ensure its safe journey to you.

My handmade pottery are produced using vintage wallpaper moulds and hot metal type in My 250 year-old studio space in Dundalk, Co. Louth, Ireland.

Impressed plates, tea light, vase

I bought these as a Christmas gift for my parents and they love them. They're very decorative and pretty and are getting lots of use already.

Mary Lennon
Beautiful gifts, excellent service and great packaging

I've just received my 2nd order of Sarah's work and I'm in love! Bought some impressed bowls and plates and the cheeseboard as Christmas gifts, they are all really beautiful. Was torn between designs so went for a mix of Blue Deco and Green Seeds and love them both! Also got one of the Home Comforts bowls (small) and it's also lovely and pleased with the size. Service was great, everything arrived perfectly wrapped / packaged (recyclable materials) within a few days of placing the orders and included nice cards. Sarah, you have a new fan! Thanks :)

Ah, I am so happy that everything was good for you Mary!

Delighted they went down well Gráinne!
