Miniature Majolica ceramic plate with olive branches
This hand made, signed and hand painted ceramic oblong dish is decorated with a favorite Italian motif: olive branches. The painting is done in underglazed colors and after a first firing, a transparent glaze is applied and the piece is fired again. The plate is almost paper thin and is 1 2/8 inch long and 7/8 inch wide.
I make all of my items from start to finish, using clay, underglaze paint, several glazes, china paint and fires them several times as required by the decoration and technique used.
