Elements in Design Dinnerware

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Pour CD127 Stoneware Teapot, CD133 Stoneware Stein, CD1334+ Tall Pitcher Vase, CD1336 Asian Teapot and CD1371 Dancing Teapot molds ¼” thick. Refer to casting instructions.
  2. Once they are firm enough to handle, use the sponge to smooth down casting lines.
  3. Fire to cone 04.
  4. Pour 2-4 oz (depending on size of piece) of FN-009 Black into the disposable cup and thin with water. Pour into piece and rotate to cover the inside. Place piece upside down for a minute to drain the excess glaze. Turn right side up and use a damp sponge to remove any drips. Repeat for all pieces, except for CD111 Handled Bowl.
  5. Using the Soft Fan with FN-009 Black, apply 2 coats to the outside of the pieces. Allow glaze to dry between coats.Before the glaze is bone dry, use the pencil to trace over the pattern. You should be able to see a slight indent in the glaze.
  6. Using the Detail Liner with AC-302 Wax Resist, outline the patterns. Make an outline between different areas on each piece. Refer to the patterns for a list of lines to make.
  7. Using the Script Liner with an Element glaze, apply 2 coats to each section. Allow glaze to dry between coats. Apply a third coat, but only in the center of the section. This will make the glaze more variegated. Refer to each piece below for colors to use on each section.
  8. Fire to cone 06.
  9. Samples were fired to cone 06 using earthenware slip and mold shapes.
