These designs are all based on a single geometric grid. It's interesting how many quite different designs can be generated from a single grid. I'm sure I've only scratched the surface. The round plates are all 13" or 14" in diameter.
The plate is 13" in diameter. The botanical aspect of the design is loosely based on a Persian original. In order to get the very light blues, I added an ivory white to the lapis blue, but I did not care for the flat opaqueness of the result after baking.
I've got two blogs going here. One covers my forays into porcelain painting. The other is, or rather was, my poetry blog. I've deleted everything on it except the poem in memory of Johnny Rahm, since that has been linked on other sites.
