Monstera Burst Plate

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with soft fired stoneware bisque. 
  2. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust. 
  3. Use a soft fan for each glaze to apply SW-502 Yellow Gloss and SW-507 Bright Green Gloss. Begin with Yellow Gloss in the center and then add the Bright Green by the edge, blend together where they meet. Apply 3 coats using this technique. A banding wheel is super helpful! 
  4. Once completely dry, use a palette knife to mix the AC-310 Silkscreen Medium with UG-50 Jet Black until it is the thickness of loose peanut butter. Use your finger to apply the thickened mixture through the leaf screen. You can use the screen repeatedly, but be sure to rinse and thoroughly dry once the screen gets gummy/is not transferring as well. 
  5. Use a fan and liner brush to apply 3 coats of SW-111 Wrought Iron to the inside/back and rim; avoiding the foot.  
  6. Use a clean sponge to wipe the excess glaze off of the foot. 
  7. Fire to cone 5/6. (Sample was fired to cone 6)
