  • Gold/silver decorations

    Gold and silver decorations consist of motifs rendered in gold and silver pigments or leaf. The decorations may be applied directly to the clay substrate or as an overglaze decoration that is fired onto the vessel. The gold and silver decorations are fired at lower temperatures than underglaze decorations, then polished to bring out their luster.

Underglaze gold and silver Porcelain clay is shaped, and by bisque and glost firing, a white base is made. The base color is applied and followed by overglaze painting and firing. Gold leaf and platinum leaf are cut into the designed patterns, and pasted, and after drying the workpiece is fired. Finally, transparent glaze is applied and the work is fired and completed. I want to create contemporary decoration in underglaze gold and silver that match present-day life styles and space.
