Continuing with the theme of fissures in rocks. These slab pots will be raku fired. As before, the burnished areas will be white and the textured areas black.
Thrown bowls and slab dishes larger than the first ones, decoration will be incised, slips and glazes.
Exploring surface decoration in stoneware using incised lines picked out with a black wash and various coloured slips. The dishes are slab-built and the others thrown.
This album shows three types of form: shallow dishes, slab pots and panels, together with some thrown bottles in the last two images. The first ones are waiting to be biscuit-fired and the black and white ones at the end are waiting for a calm, non-windy day, so I can give them the final firing – raku. They are all slab-built and I’m working on the textures found in rocks.
