Screen printing on clay is one of my favorite ceramic decorating techniques. And using paper stencils and underglaze is right up there with it. Both are fantastic ways to transfer imagery to a pot (especially if you are “drawing compromised”). One of the best practitioners of these techniques is Kansas City-based artist Meredith Host.
