These plates started as a slab. I prepared colored porcelain by overlaping multiple strips of different colors and rolled in a coil. I then cut this slices of colored coil (~2 mm thick) and layed them out on slab. Using pony roller I slowly rolled the pieces into the slab taking care not to thin out the slab. Then I cut out the circle and paced it upside down on a hump hydro-bat mold (The Ceramic Shop, Philadelphia), and threw the plate on a wheel. I then added a thin coil and threw a foot ring.

After bisque firing, the plates were finished with a clear glaze and blue glaze sprayed in the middle, and fired in reduction at cone 10.
