About This Item

This beautiful ironstone Bluejay Plate is hand painted in calming hues of blue, lavender, purple and yellow. The bird is represented in an abstract form and the plate is finished with a mica-infused gold rim. Bring an abstract touch to any dinner party or perch the plate on a shelf and let the bluejay keep watch.

The Bluejay, called Tla-yuh in Cherokee, is the guardian of the forest. When I was young I used to walk in the woods with my grandmother looking for wild greens, mushrooms or plants for medicine. She used to stop and say “Listen. The woods know we’re here.” You could hear the “kaw-kaw” sound of the bird as it flew from tree to tree, letting the other animals know were there there.
