10" diameter, 1 3/8" deep.
Drape molded (laid over the mold) red earthenware clay with white slip (liquid clay) painted over the surface. The design was created using the sgraffito method of scratching through the white slip to reveal the red clay beneath. Fired in an electric kiln. The back is unglazed following the traditions of the early Pennsylvania German potters.
