With this indian paintbrush platter I created an illusion that they are within a meadow of blooming lupines, balsamroot, and forget-me-knots. This is handpainted over bees and honeycomb that was inpressed into the clay. When handpainting the indian paintbrush I use underglazes, so that I can blend the hues of reds to create the wildflower after the underglazes are painted over with a clear glaze. The rim is painted with a layer of two glazes. On the back of the platter are bees and a honeycomb 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.
