What saucers will work with the pottery?

Here's what Guy Wolff says about 'what goes under the pot':

I have always said the very thing that makes clay great for flowerpots, makes clay inappropriate for saucers; the clay breathes and lets air and water circulate. Putting flowerpots on a clay saucer is like putting a sponge on your table and then filling it with water.

The answer is to use a non-clay medium to protect the saucer surface below and to make that saucer of good proportion. My favorite trick is to then fill the saucer with an appropriate colored gravel or crushed stone so that the pot can sit out of the saucer altogether. Adding moss or a little soil to grow some grasses can add a wonderful touch to the overall presentation.'
