Ceramics: Slab Plate with Mishima Etching
Clay Body: Soldate
Glazes on Mishima etching: Mayco turquoise, electric blue, bright blue, apple green, leaf green underglazes and Cone 5 clear on bisque
Unfortunately I used a square plastic plate to slump my slap and while etching with my pin tool, I cut through the clay which showed up in the final firing. I find it weird and fascinating that clay has a memory. This plate is not functional as a plate, so I plan on just displaying it as wall art.
