PC SUBSTRATES:LIGHTING




"Before the light is turned on it appears to be a black on white brush drawing. When illuminated,
the colored glaze panel is backlit, giving a brushwork decoration silhouette against
the colored background."
Robin Hopper










"The translucent PC Substrate panel has been painted on one side with black pigment brushwork. On the  reverse it has been loosely painted with cone 10 colored glazes.

The PC Substrate™ has been fired with the glaze surface to the top and the pigment surface beneath, directly on the kiln shelf. As there is no glassformer in the pigment it will not stick to the kiln shelf surface, so both painted surfaces are fired and fused in place in one firing.

Before the light is turned on it appears to be a black on white brush drawing. When illuminated, the colored glaze panel is backlit, giving a brushwork decoration silhouette against the colored background. 

Many variations of this process are possible incorporating hand-drawn or printed images using ceramic pencils, Conté crayon, ceramic pastels, decals and direct printing for example - linocut, woodcut and screen printing." Robin Hopper
