Kraak ware dinner plates. Updated 15th June 2017
15 June 2017
Recently my stoneware spin on the tradition of “kraak” ware, Europe’s response to the Ming dynasty imported blue on white porcelains, has become a bit of an obsession. But intense decoration is fun to do, and, when the colours come right in the firing, very rewarding. Some of these plates are the ones which were exhibited in The Oxford Ceramics Gallery, as part of the “Michael Cardew and his Pupils” exhibition. Happily, three out of four sold at the opening in May.
