Plate making workshops; part 4

We are still making ceramic plates at the Dudley Road workshops. This week we have been busy decorating the plates.

Several people used tracing paper to transfer images onto the plates While others decided to paint under glazes directly on to the surface. Under glazes work a bit like water colours, and will need a coat of transparent glaze on top to look their best.

It has been a great experiment, and I am looking forward to see what the final result will be once they have all been fired.

About Anna

I am a ceramic sculptor living on the South coast near London, England. My work is influenced by my experience of the earth as a living being and seeing how we are all connected with eachother and with the things that surround us. I create ceramic torsos using molochite clay which I often smokefire in galvanised dustbins. I also make House Gods to protect and amuse, and Fat Birds - little smokefired sculptures that tell the story about what it is like to be a fat bird at peace with its surroundings.
