“Liquid clay called slip is poured over the pot.”

“A design is drawn through the slip to reveal the contrasting clay beneath.”

“After the first ‘biscuit ’ firing the pot is hard enough and pourous for Douglas to pour glaze over the surface.”

The above glazing images CB/ 75,76,77,78 and 79 are what they are. I am evidently tiring at this point and struggling to be creative but they demonstrate this phase of the process adequately and capture the elements that are important to Douglas and the viewer.

“Ready for firing.”

Now the process is completed, ready for firing. Again I have tried to apply a new lighting skill learnt in the last assignment.   I have a desk lamp high and pointing down and slightly forward to give ‘fall off’ and form to the pot.
