Today's WORD-A-DAY: PATE-SUR-PATE


French for "paste on paste" and pronounced "paht-sur-paht," PATE-SUR-PATE is a porcelain decorating method developed by Sevres in France in the mid-19th century, in which a series of layers of slip (liquid clay) are brushed onto a ceramic piece, to create an almost translucent cameo-like effect.
