Canadian Studio Pottery – Chris Snedden

Here is an interesting plate that has recently come into the Waterford Antique Market.

 

It was created by Chris Snedden who works with London Clay Arts Centre And is the Ceramics Professor at Lambton College in Sarnia. This plate is a mid temperature stoneware clay body. The interesting aspect of many of Sweden’s pieces is the use of slip transfers.

These are paper clay images that are  laid on the surface and after firing the clay slip image is left. Note the trees, etc on this piece. If you are interested, see Chris Snedden's website for more information.
