of sumptuous and striped colors! Some available for purchase here.
I throw each plate on the potter’s wheel, trim the foot and alter the rim, giving it some undulation. I also decorate the surface with sponged and trailed slip (the clay version of cake-decorating), swirls and dots of shallow texture and relief patterns. The stripes and/or large dots of color are underglazes and are finished by dipping into one of nine glossy glazes from my palette and fired in an electric kiln to cone seven.
