Majolica wanna be

In this post is a platter with an abstract tree with earthy colors in the background, such as green, yellow and blue. It is wheel thrown and turned, with an even wall thickness. After bisque, I applied a transparent glaze and painted these decorations over the wet glaze. I then left my platter to stand over night to prevent crawling and fired it to 1100oC. The technique is the same as the Majolica technique, but using a transparent glaze.
