Before…

The after shot will be up soon….

The funny thing about the way I work is that I’m a mess.  My intention is to have a nice clean, crisp, sharp line for my deocrations.  In order to get that, I use a modified mishima technique where I carve into the leather-hard clay (I typically use an x-acto blade).  As you can see, the before is messy with a big splat of black slip all over the piece.  I’ll wipe that away with a clean, damp sponge as soon as the slip dries a bit.  If I’ve done it correctly…I’m left with a nice sharp line.  I won’t even show you what my wheel looks like after a 3 week cycle of making…talk about a messy!

Like watching slip dry...
