This is an original design and is one-of-a-kind created "in the moment" where I used my charcoal pencil to sketch the design with the scratch tool next to me just waiting to be of use!This plate is slightly deeper on the left and still lays flat.


Signed and dated April 26, 2024, "sunny".

10" diameter, 1" deep.Gift boxed.


The clay was rolled flat with a rolling pin, and cut with a circle cutter. Then the clay was laid over a bisque mold (drape molded) until leather-hard (stiff but not dry). White liquid clay (slip) was painted over the surface of the red earthenware clay to create 2 layers. The design was created using the sgraffito method of scratching through the white slip to reveal the red clay beneath. It was fired in an electric kiln. The back is unglazed following the traditions of the early Pennsylvania German potters.
