The rose on this plate was painted using a transfer method. I painted the rose on a piece of newspaper with underglaze let it dry. Then, I placed the dry paper onto the clay and, using a spray bottle, I wet the back of the drawing. A roller encouraged the underglaze to transfer to the clay surface. Since the painted surface is not the exact same depth in every place, the underglaze transfers unevenly, leaving a beautiful antiqued or distressed look in the transferred image.
This stoneware plate is food safe, dishwasher safe, microwave safe, and oven safe. It is approximately 9.5 X 6.75".
