Sarah Bak - Mountain Salad Plate
Small porcelain plate, in the perfect size for a sandwich, or a dinner salad. This hand thrown plate is painted by hand in a navy blue mountain range pattern.
A little bit of info about the process:
After the pot is thrown with porcelain clay, the bottom is trimmed of excess material. I paint the design using underglazes while the clay is still damp. This is called the leather hard stage, and I love the sheen of the clay at this point in the process. Then, I carve through the painted areas with a special tool to create the white lines that you see within the design. Once it is fully dry, it is fired the first time, and the leaves and stem are painted with underglazes. A clear glaze is applied and it is then fired the second time to a much higher temperature, approximately 2165 degrees.
Microwave and dishwasher safe.
Approximate dimensions: 7.5" diameter by 1" tall
