Painting on porcelain is extremely rewarding. Using sharp tools to create fines lines in which eventually pure oxides , slips etc will be rubbed in helps create delicate and controlled drawings . A variety of lines -criss cross , dashed , hatched in combination with contemporary motifs , use of lips, shoes, handwriting etc together create a playful image.
The white body of clay enhances every mark and brings out the rich color of the pigments and minerals used.
