Mark van Huystee is a well known citizen of Delft, mostly for his drawings of city views. Here he worked on a typical Dutch subject; a ceramic wall plate just for decoration. To realize this he cooperated with Olav Slingerland; a master in casting and techniques.
Olav Slingerland has been making molds of two square plaster plates. Marks drawing is carved in a plaster mold, using a laser. The clay poured into this mold fills the lines, transferring the relief of the drawing onto the plate. Blue glaze ensures that the white relief is visible.
