Lace Impression

Uncategorized | 27 Jul 2012 | No Comments

This is how I handbuild a beautiful bowl with a lace impression.

First, transfer the lace impression onto the slab of clay.

Next, I use my guide to cut out the size and edge pattern.

Now, I drape it onto my form and work with it until it’s smooth.  This step takes a long time!

A coil base finishes it off.

Here it is as greenware, right before it goes into the kiln.

Sometimes I put the lace on the inside and sometimes on the outside.  Here it is close up on the outside.

 

Notice the color change after it comes out of the kiln.

What a beautiful terra cotta color.

Time for fun with glazes!
