White earthenware platters, 14" and 11", press-molded, stamped, shellac-resisted, commercial underglazes and clear glaze

Here are two more platters from the same experimental series as the one below. These are drape-molded, inverted onto a slump mold, impressed and trimmed. After thorough drying, they are finished with a scrubby and the shellac resist design is painted in the center. The underglazes are layered on the rim, then the whole thing is painted with underglaze and bisque fired. To finish, the platters are coated with clear gloss glaze and glaze fired.

I am now much closer to the look I am after. It seems that the underglazes become semi-transparent on white earthenware under clear glaze. I experimented with red earthenware and was much happier with the colors. So… I know what my next platters will be made of.
