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, spoon rest, or simply storing pencils in your office. Each piece measures approximately 9" x 3.5".
In the first slate, a red giraffe stands tall leaning to snatch up some munchies from the tall grass. Another tall giraffe is ambling through the grass in the back followed by a brown elephant. A brown oryx stands to the right looking curiously at the viewer. A curious cheetah lazes in the center of this scene as a nonchalant zebra walks past. The sky is a deep stormy turquoise and the rim is a medium brown/orange color with black and white accents.
In the second slate, a sneaky cheetah's head is visible on the right. He looks to be watching the peaceful scene. On the left a zebra grazes and an oryx looks down for food. An alert antelope is looking up and behind. He senses something about to happen. The sky is a pretty light blue and the rim is medium orange/brown with deep teal green leaf accents.
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!
