This is a hand crafted english porcelain plaque.
100% Handmade English Porcelain Ceramic Plaque
The beautiful translucency of the clay makes for a beautiful product.

The English Porcelain clay is pressed through a slab roller before being cut into various size pieces. I use poems, sayings or quotes that resonate with me at the time. It’s easy to see how I am feeling based on the final project! Each letter is hand pressed and then the plaque is placed between two drywall boards until it is dried, usually 5 - 7 days.

It is then bisque fired to 1945 degrees F in one of two kilns in my own studio. This takes about 12 hours to fire and another 12 to cool. A glaze(s) are chosen and applied with three coats, allowing it to dry completely between coats. The work is then fired again to 2225 degrees F and cooled slowly, for a total of 30 hours. I truly hope that you enjoy your piece as much as I did making it.

Hand made plaques have their own unique charm due to individual letter stamping. Each plaque will vary slightly.
