Rustic Staffordshire stoneware plate thrown in my garden studio.
It is decorated with a technique of inlaying slip into a contrasting clay body. The process is called Mishima. This technique allows for extremely fine, intricate design work with hard, sharp edges that can be difficult to reliably replicate in any other way.
It features a hedgerow inlaid design of leaves, seed-heads and berries and is inspired by my rural location.
The body of the clay is glazed with a clear glossy glaze to protect and preserve the image and transform it into a decorative or functional homeware.
