A Similar Plate...



For those who like the first pattern, here is a somewhat similar (less detailed -- the design is painted on but the negative space is not sculpted out) plate design to that first small dessert plate.  I did this back in 2007 as a special order for clients from 2006.

You can see here how stoneware differs from low fire majolica - the glaze is much harder, and the general effect is more hazed, softer, muted. That is the effect of this particular type of engobe which I make in the studio.
