Today In the Studio: Earthenware Songbird Plate

Today the early morning sun was pouring in the studio clerestorey windows, and it almost felt like Spring. Here is that beautiful sunlight illuminating my worktable. Between tile jobs I like to do little creative experiments like this Songbird Plate, shown ready for firing. It is done in a traditional majolica style, with a white tin glaze on red earthenware, decorated with cobalt oxide.
