Notes Comment:
"Stage 5 in the development of my rolled pottery figurines. Bisque figure using stained bodies for decoration. As in the stoneware figures, the matt finish avoids the shiny highlights on the glazed porcelain figures which tend to interfere with the effectiveness of the modelling. The cream and stained bodies are rolled together or inlaid by rollin,g as in a child's dress."
