19 inch diameter x 3"h decorative ceramic platter.  My forms use a mid-range porcelain clay body and are either thrown or handbuilt. After sketching the design on the form I use a mishima technique carving recessed lines into the leatherhard clay before painting on 2-3 layers of black underglaze. I then use a technique called sgraffito carving away the black to reveal the drawing. Slip trailed lines might then be added. After bisque firing (1855 degrees) the interior of the forms are glazed and fired to cone 6 (2232 degrees).
