Default Food/water Dish Dimensions & Material?

How high should the food/water dishes be? I'm worried that if its too high, it would be straining for the hedgie to eat/drink. But I'm also concerned of the contents spilling...

What kind of material should the food dish be? Would a terracotta dish be okay for a food dish?

I wouldn't use terra cotta just because you can't clean it as well as you could plastic or ceramic.
I use this bowl for food:

This for her treat bowl (the little tiny one):

And this for water:

So if the dish is around 2 inches high, it would be just fine?
