The new clay which was sourced from and made in Italy, reacted well after glazing and firing. It is a lovely white shade, remains light weight after firing, and is decorated on both sides.
It was definitely worth the time to make it: elegant, thin, and strong!

Shades of Blue
Reknown french ceramicist Theodore Deck (19 century) made a beautiful large dish with this pattern. It was last sold at auction by Christies in 2012 for 3750€! The original dish is 50cm diameter. I've adapted the pattern showing shades of blue on a 36cm charger sourced from Italy. The famous Theodore Deck’s blue is wonderful and other photos are available on request!
