The dish is an original, licensed reproduction piece and is part of the handmade product line. The vintage aesthetic and unique production technique make this piece a one-of-a-kind addition to any collection. Sam Kwan was the instructor at Capilano College, where, sadly the ceramics department has now closed. He was also a much appreciated technician at Emily Carr College for several of their intensive Summer ceramics courses. Perfect condition no chips or cracks.
