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.
