My new cherry blossom work is made on potters wheel and involves numerous steps and working with with very wet clay. I've been transferring white slip onto news print to create a layered stucco effect on my work. An underglaze wash is applied for an antiquing appearance and glaze inside. Then I hand paint my cherry blossom pattern. I leave the outside bare clay and unglazed. The outside of each item is then wet sanded after it has come out of its final firing for a smooth finish.
I hope you enjoy this new work as much as I have enjoyed developing the process and making it.
