Detail of Lip
I create my earthenware vessels from soft slabs and coils of clay, often adding texture with stamps and forming shapes on molds made of fired clay. The surfaces are finished with terra sigillata, a finely textured clay slip, and bisque fired. I then finish the bisque-fired surfaces with a black copper oxide wash to accentuate the surface txtures and then apply a borax wash before the final glaze firing.
