BARBAR Floating Garden Big Butterfly Plate
This plate depicts exotic worlds that combine elements of disparate times and cultures into sophisticated Japanesque design, reminiscent of the eccentric zugawari designs of late Edo-period Imari porcelain. It is decorated with floating garden motifs such as clouds, waxing and waning moons, butterflies, and eight-pointed stars.
In order to reproduce the dazzling contrast of the blue and white transfers at the time, we devised our own color concoction, producing numerous prototypes before reaching results we were happy with.
The edge of the plate is lined with a green overglaze that completes the design, combining traditional dyeing techniques with modern elements.
The copperplate transfer printing technique used can result in slips and gaps that create subtle variations.
Do not put overglaze products in the dishwasher. Microwave safe.
