A Decorative Accent
Great For Cat Food or Candy, Change, Trinkets, Jewelry, Spoonrest, Soap Dish, etc.
Although I hand pour most of my pieces, this great dish was poured by another ceramic studio for me. It was made in a plaster mold using ceramic slip (liquid clay). As the plaster removes water from the slip, the piece firms up enough to be removed from the mold. It is cleaned and fired in a kiln to become bisque. I draw my design in pencil on the bisque piece and using underglazes, it is then painted in a watercolor manner and fired again. After it cools, usually 24 hours, it is glazed inside and out with a clear lead-free glaze and refired in the kiln. Because all of the design work is done under the glaze, it is dishwasher safe.
Size: 5" X 3-1/4" X 3/4" Deep
