Creating Earthenware Chargers


During March and April I produced a few white earthenware chargers in the studios at college. They are pressmoulded over a hump mould (ah the joys of a slab roller! Yes plaese Santa). I'm bisque firing them without any decoration as I intend to paint majolica style directly on top of a tin white glaze, the first chargers will be painted with amaco velvet underglazes instead of oxides, this will create a vibrant contemporary style which should compliment my ideas of portraying modern scenes taken direct influence from the historical chargers in the collection of York Museums Trust.
