Porcelain artist Mary Belle Cordell is painting twenty ten inch plates to be installed as one work of art. They will be installed in rows of four plates. Each plate will touch the other. A continual 17th century floral pattern will flow throughout the design. You may look forward in the next few months to view how this china painting project is progressing. Each designed plate will connect to one of the other plates and all will be fired in a kiln many times at a temperature of 1400 to 1700 degrees. Mary Belle is continually pushing the limits with her original designs. The fine art of china painting is always opening new experiences for this porcelain artist.
