happy cat platter

This happy cat was inspired by my cat, Guido... as in Guido Sarducci.  It's done in sgraffito which means I paint the whole thing with 3 coats of black underglaze and then carve out the design revealing the white stoneware clay.  This produces great lines and textures!  After the bisque firing to 1828 degrees I brush on the clear glaze and fire to 2151 (cone 5.)
