These photos show detail of my coolamon platters decoration. The colours are on the inside and the plain stamp is on the outside. I have then used a coloured terrasiggilata on the outside which will remain unglazed. The inside will have a clear glaze to enhance the coloured underglazes and make them functional.
These are not the best photos but you can get the idea. To make them I roll out a small slab of clay, stamp my decoration on the clay then cut the slab and reassemble it in a plaster mold. The decoration is made by a technique called relief printing using underglaze colours. So far I have made five and the first one is in a kiln ready to be fired tomorrow.
