Image 1 / 1
    A smooth plaster block is made on which drawings of reptiles are etched into its surface. A clay slab is then rolled over the ‘etching’ to pick up the image. as aThe image becomes a raised drawing on the surface of the clay. The clay slab is then cut to shape and laid in a shallow plaster mould to curve its surface. 
    If slip trailing or dotting is to be used to decorate the image it is done at this stage of the process. I use an off white porcelain slip. When the clay form is firm enough to hold its shape the feet are added to the underside of the piece. Plates are fired to the usual 1000 degrees bisque firing. 
    Once fired a white tin glaze is poured over one half of the plate and a shiny green or blue/ green glaze is poured over the other half. Copper carbonate mixed in water is then used to paint images of dragonflies, bamboo or grasses onto the tin white surface.  
    The pieces are then fired to 1225 degrees C.
