Transfer 4

Susanne Haag Keramiek Transfer 4

Transfer on round form with rusty wood motif (height 22 cm) To create a transfer is very similar to printing onto paper. However, in order for prints to be fired onto ceramics there are important differences in the printing mediums and colourants used. The decoration on this object is from a self-made transfer made from a photograph of wood. The image is printed with special glaze on special paper. With some water the images stick to the object. The object is put in the electric kiln. In 5 hours the temperature of 800°C is reached and kept on that temperature for another hour. Thus the decoration is burned into the glazed pot. The kiln is switched off, and after cooling down the pot is ready.
