Most people on this board use polymer clay, not air-dry clays.  That's probably one reason you're not getting answers.

If you want to check out some of the ways to make dishes/plates/etc from polymer clay though, then many of the same principles and techniques would apply to any clay since those are "sculpted" items and polymer clay can be used to make that sort of thing just like any other clay (...except that unlike air-dry clays, polymer clay won't shrink, won't need sealing, and will stay very supple and smooth even when exposed to air, etc/etc).  Polymer clay can do many things air-dry clays can't do though  Grin

So check out this page at my polymer clay "encyclopedia" site:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/miniatures.htm
....then click on the sub-category in the list called Dishware, Bakeware (under Foods)

And here are a couple of google searches for making miniature dishes with various kinds of clay:

http://www.google.com/images?q=how+to+make+miniature+dishes+clay
You can also check out forums and lessons for "miniaturists," who often make items like dishware but aren't usually members of the general polymer clay community even though they mostly use polymer clay for those things:
http://www.google.com/search?q=miniatures+forums+dollhouse

If you're interested, there's also some stuff at my site on "cold porcelain" clays:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/armatures-temp.htm
....click on Cornstarch Clays
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/sculpture.htm
....click on Air-Dry Clays, then scroll down to Cold Porcelain Clays

HTH,
