Redware House Plate Using The Sgraffito Technique

Redware House plate of red earthenware with white slip. Yellow coloring is from transparent glaze emulating yellowish colors of antique redware plates. Decorated using the sgraffito technique - scratching through the white slip to reveal red clay beneath.
Project began with patron's photograph. Patron decided on oval plate, verses round. Additional photo of attached shed was requested, and received, because its detail could not be obtained from original photo. Two sketches were conceived so that patron could decide upon having upper half of building all red (clay) or lines of siding displayed. Additional questions may include where to put names and/or dates, trees, flowers, what to include, what not to include, and lastly, what to inscribe on the back. Photo of plate in its greenware state was emailed to patron and after being bisque fired, glazed and fired again the plate was shipped to the patron.

Dimensions: $75.00 deposit is required and you are given a sketch of the plate to approve.
