This is the first of my two plates; the other is currently in the bisque kiln. It is 7" in diameter and about 1.5" in height (bottom to top of rim). It is a smooth texture throughout, glazed with a scrap blue and a blue containing rutile. Since making a plate only involves compressing the base of the clay and then raising the edges, I did not use any new techniques while making this plate. Art elements present in this project are the contrast of two different hues (light blue and scrap blue) and also the 3:4 ratio of colors. Though I thought this may have an aesthetic appeal, I do not really like it.
