Redware Wedding/Anniversary Plate Decorated Using The Sgraffito Technique

Commemorate your loved ones' Special Day!
This plate is created using the tools and techniques of the Pennsylvania German potters. Each plate begins as a slab of clay rolled flat with a rolling pin and then drape molded (laid over a mold) to shape it. When it is just dry enough to handle without losing its shape liquid white clay (slip) is applied to the surface. The design is scratched, known as sgraffito, into the slip revealing the red clay beneath. It is bisque fired then the glaze is applied and fired again. The completed piece will have the overall yellowish coloring of antique redware plates on the front, the back is unglazed and the diameter is approximately 10 1/2 ".

PLEASE NOTE! Because this is a piece made JUST for you and your loved ones I require 8 weeks lead time.

A Sentiment may be included on the back and is optional. You could include a special sentiment of your own, where they were married and, of course, the giver's name(s).

Information I need:
Names
Date
Sentiment on the back

Any Additional information from you

Dimensions: $75.00 deposit is required, with remaining payment made before item is shipped. Photo of finished piece may be requested prior to being shipped. 10 1/2' diameter or 11 1/2' diameter

    The plate is beautiful and exactly what I wanted. Denise was very accommodating to help with the design. I would definitely use her again.
