These pieces were in a glaze firing a few weeks ago.
The plates are about 7" and 9", stoneware

The platter is almost 14" in diameter. I took away the severity of the stripes by brushing even strokes of a fluxing mixture on the rim before doing the striping with iron oxide and copper carbonate.

These are small, 3" and under

 The impressions you see are made by hand-carved wooden printing blocks from India.  The were made to be used in printing designs on fabric. The platter is 13 and a half inches long.

...a small covered serving dish or casserole-about 7" across.
