Screen-Print Transfers – New Mixed Media Combo

First time trying out silk-screen image transfers in ceramics. Done on B-Mix greenware slabs/plaques, with black underglaze substituted for ink in the screen-printing process. This is a new and interesting method to me, as I enjoy both printmaking and ceramics very much. To combine them both into the art making process and converse with each other is an exciting experience.

I plan to take this method into more advanced and refined pieces, as for now, these tiles act as rough tests for me. Figuring out the process to get clean images, and basic fine tuning. I am happy with how they turned out, and will continue my experimentation and production with this method in my pottery.
