To get a heavily textured surace, I applyslip to the outside o a reshly thrownorm. The slip should be thick enough tocreate a variey o textures without running.
Use a torch to dry the slipuntil it’s no longer shiny andstarts to crackle. The crackle isenhanced by stretching the clayusing a wooden rib on the inside.
Ater the clay reachesleather hard, construc-tion is completed. HereI’ve taken a cylinder, cut itin hal, attached it to thesides and added caps.
Ater bisque fring to cone 04, pour glaze intothe piece and work quickly to roll it around.Rotate the piece as you pour out the glaze to evenlycoat the rim.
To highlight the texture, brush on White Crackleglaze over the vitreous slip. Next, sponge awaythe surace to leave glaze in the low areas and cracks.
White glaze is applied with a slip trailer andbamboo brush, then I begin to add colors, otenoverlapping up to fve coats. Slip trailing white overthe pattern adds even more movement.
Copper accents are brushed onto the unglazedareas and the vitreous slip. Splatter more whiteglaze over the exterior using a scrubbing brush andfre to cone 06.
