Elk  Ghost - Arlene's Doily
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 tray I used a underglaze rub techique on the doily, elk, and tracks and finished with hand painting a clear glaze. On the back of the platter is the same doliy that was impressed within the clay with dragonflies, 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: 10.5 inches x 5.5 inches
