Matzo Ball Soup Bowl

Designer: Laura Fraedrich



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan Brush, apply 2 coats of SW-123 to the back side and front rim of the bowl. Do not glaze the bottom or the foot.
  3. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan Brush, apply 2 coats of SW-506 Bright Blue Gloss over the Sapphire.
  4. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan Brush, apply 2 coats of SW-501 White Gloss to the inside of the bowl and let dry well.
  5. Using the carbon paper and a pencil, transfer the pattern onto the platter. You may have to cut the pattern apart to help it fit inside the bowl.
  6. Fill the AC-222 bottles with SW-508 Black Gloss, SW-503 Orange Gloss, SW-502 Yellow Gloss, and SW-510 Blue Gloss, and SW-506 Bright Blue Gloss and attach writer tips.
  7. Use the applicator bottle with the Black Gloss for the letters, the one with the Blue Gloss for the Menorah, the one with the Yellow Gloss for the candles, and the one with the Orange Gloss for the flames. Use Bright Blue Gloss for the stars and to add dots to the menorah. Use Blue Gloss to make dots around the top edge of the inside of the bowl.
  8. Do not stilt or hang over the edge of the kiln shelf.
  9. Fire to cone 5/6.
