This is another handmade piece from Penzo's Zimbabwe studio. The butter slate is a very flexible piece - use it for butter, corn on the cob, spoonrest, or simply storing pencils in your office. Each piece measures approximately 9" x 3.5".
A preening cheetah steals the show on the first slate as it confronts a giraffe and sends a pair of zebras galloping away along a riverbank. Safely across the river a solitary elephant strides confidently along the other bank trumpeting its call under a pale blue autumn sky set against the backdrop of golden orange grassland foliage.
A big blue elephant trumpets as he stomps off the scene in this pretty butter slate. A warthog walks by hm on the path next to a tan oryx. A zebra stands off to the right, thinking about whether to stay where he is or go somewhere else. A lovely deep turquoise sky contrasts nicely with the deep orange leaf pattern on the rim.
In the third slate a little yellow and blue bird sits on a termite mound in the foreground. A little tan warthog scurries toward a big tan elephant who is trumpeting. A tan oryx enters from the left. A zebra stands n the middle sniffing the air for danger. Tall brush grows in the background under a lovely medium blue sky. A pretty mango orange rim surrounds the piece, decorated in black slashes.
Each Penzo piece is microwave and dishwasher friendly. Since each piece is one of a kind, the butter slate you choose will be the one you will actually receive. Once it's gone, however, it's gone.........slate a teal giraffe leans down to graze in a thatch of brush. A zebra enters the scene on the right with his nose in the air sniffing for danger. A little gazelle stands alert on the foreground and a tan oryx ambles off the scene on the left. A lavender elephant bellows in the background against a powder blue sky. The rim is a pretty mix of colors: powder blue, lavender, teal and yellow - all the colors in the scene itself. A pretty scene!
