Embroidering on Porcelain

Porcelain tea light made by my Father. 
An experiment using a computer generated embroidery that I stitched onto a sheer net curtain. Dad pressed it into a soft porcelian slab and then rolled the slab around a tube before firing. The bright eye is where the stitching pierced the clay. I like this combination of modern and traditional techniques - the precise and the obviously hand-made.
