Plate of Plenty

I have been making tableware for us. This is one of my dinner plates. It's BIG, measuring over 12 inches across! I like to use a textured stamp for decoration and then paint several layers of contrasting underglaze (paint) on the piece. Then I lightly sand to reveal different layers of paint. Tonight's pot roast tasted great on it!
There is great satisfaction creating something you can eat or drink out of. :)
I hope you've all had a peaceful end to your work week and have something relaxing planned for the weekend.

Love that design in the center - is it stamped or carved?
