I made this oil dipping dish for my wife for Valentine's day. It works really well! You fill it with olive oil, and then add a little balsamic vinegar to fill in the heart. It even stays nice and clean-looking after you've dipped a few pieces of bread. I gave it to her yesterday because we'll be too busy during the week to have a nice bread, brie, and wine dinner. She loved it, and was totally surprised.

What an awesome and creative use of the ceramic material! I'd never even heard of dishes that utilized the properties of the two fluids in this way. Always inspiring to see unexplored uses for print materials! :)

Thanks for the positive feedback, everyone. I have a couple more in mind that I might try.

One problem with ceramic, though, is it gets expensive to order examples of your own just for photographing! I'm tempted to open an etsy shop just to sell off the examples I order to print. I'm not sure they'd actually sell on etsy, though. Does anyone else do that?

Yes, people sell on etsy. You could also try on ebay, as you can sell so many items value wise per month for free. Once you get selling, put your items up on Fab.com

Also now that you have a proof of concept, you could render your other designs. PM me if you would like some made up.
