Handmade Folk Art Pottery made in Pennsylvania and inspired by Pennsylvania German pottery from the late 1600s through the 1800s.
This plate displays areas of a darker color adding interest to the design.

 The slip-trailing technique, where slip (liquid clay) is drawn over the red earthenware, was used to create the squiggle lines and dots.

### Clay is a natural product and will contain, and display, additional natural particles.  ###

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.  Then 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.
