Miniature ceramic plate - Quimper with star
This hand made, signed and hand painted ceramic dinner plate is decorated in the old French country style of Quimper, a small town in Brittany. The pottery was made as early as 1708 and one of the motif used was the star. The plate is almost paper thin and 1 inch in diameter.
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.
