This week I have posted some new work in my Etsy Shop. It has been some time since I tackled a large platter. I choose earthenware clay as the shrinkage is less, and I have fewer problems with the clay cracking around the bisqued form that I use as a mold. This one has turned out particularly pleasing, has fired with no signs of warping or slumping. I had fun decorating it in the majolica style that is popular in Italy and Portugal.
