Peacock Glaze Plate

Designer: Carmen Allen


  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 stoneware bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the AC-222 Medium Writer Tip Kit, apply SW-303 Manganese Wash in a pattern around the rim. We applied 2 rows of “w”s so there is a space to add the Stroke and Coat. 
  3. Exchange the cap on you SC for an AC-224 Plastic Detailer Cap and apply SC-29 Bluegrass as dots inside of the loops made with the wash. 
  4. Allow to dry and repeat steps 2 and 3. 
  5. Allow the glaze to dry. 
  6. Using a fan brush, apply 3 coats of SW173 Amber Quartz to both the inside and the outside of the bowl. Allow the glaze to dry in between coats and avoid glazing the foot. 
  7. Use a damp sponge to wipe away any glaze that may have gotten on the foot. 
  8. Fire to cone 5/6. Sample was fired to cone 6. 

We also created a bowl using the same technique view the Peacock Glaze Bowl project here!
