Arlene's Doily and Indian Paintbrush Platter.

Arlene was by Dad's cousin that helped rise him. She passed away many years ago,however, I keep her art alive within my pottery. I use two of her doilies in my studio. Even when she lost her sight she continued to create prefect doilies.

On this platter I laided glazes on the doily. The indian paintbrush I created an illusion that they are within a meadow of blooming lupines and forget-me-knots. I use underglazes to paint the wildflowers, so that I can blend the hues, after I paint clear glaze over them.  On the back of the platter is the same doliy that was impressed within the clay and finished with a underglaze rub.

The platter was created from handrolled stoneware clay. The platter was fired to a cone 6, all the glazes are food safe, it can be used in a micorwave and dishwasher. 

Size: 10.25" x 13.75"
