Commissioned by Mission Clay Products company of Corona, California to honor the 130 year history of clay pipe manufacturing in Pittsburg, Kansas and given to long time employees. Glazed porcelain plates were repurposed and the surfaces embellished with layers of china paint, decals and gold luster. Ceramic decals were made from the original beehive kiln plans from the WS Dickey clay pipe factory.
