Handmade Folk Art Pottery made in Pennsylvania and inspired by Pennsylvania German pottery from the late 1600s through the 1800s. The design is created using the slip-trailing technique where slip (liquid clay) is drawn over the red earthenware.

### Clay is a natural product and will contain and display additional natural particles adding interest to this plate ###
Each plate begins as a lump of red earthenware clay that is rolled flat with a rolling pin and then cut to fit the mold. Next it's slip-trailed to decorate it. The edge is coggled giving it a crimped edge, and then drape molded (laid over mold) to give it nice, slightly bowled shape. Using an electric kiln the piece is bisque fired, and the glaze is applied and fired again. Food-safe glaze is on the front and the back of the plate is unglazed in the Pennsylvania German potters tradition.
