Prue Cooper on making her dishes:

The dishes are slabs of clay pressed into plaster moulds, like making jam tarts. They are red earthenware, decorated with slips (“slip” just describes sloppy clay); the ground colour is brushed, the lettering extruded (like writing Happy Birthday on a cake), and the images are transferred off paper cut-outs which have been brushed with slip, and the internal lines drawn in with a porcupine quill. The dishes are dish-washer proof, microwavable, gently oven-proof, and food-safe.
