Yesterday, these two new ceramic pieces came out of the kiln and I am delighted by them. I threw both on the wheel and carved both in the sgraffito method I enjoy. I am so glad they survived the firing process unscathed.
The plate with the blue flowers is the size of a big dinner plate, and the orange serving platter is quite large. I took a photograph of it below with my phone to show scale. Considering that the clay shrinks 33%, it was huge when I threw it– probably my most sizable yet. I look forward to trying to make more!
