This one-of-kind plate was handmade in a mid-1700s stone house located in Lehigh County (part of Bucks County a long time ago!).

I sign, date and inscribe the day's weather on the back. May 20, 2024, "Sunny".
10" diameter, 1 5/8" 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.
