Honey Bee Plate
Stoneware, wheelthrown, oxidation kiln c/6, underglaze, monoprinted & stamped.
The floral design was hand painted with black underglaze on paper and transferred onto the wet-leatherhard plate. Small dots were then imprinted into the wet clay around the design. Once bisqued, washes of black underglaze were applied to the floral design to create shadows. A clear, glossy glaze was applied and the piece was fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln.
