Black and White

After a seemingly long winter break from pottery, I am so happy to be back in the studio.  I am trying out some new ideas, including different clay bodies and glazing techniques.  These bowls are thrown in a red manganese clay.  After the bisque fire, I dipped in matte black, painted wax resist stripes and zig zag patterns and re-dipped in a glossy white.   The wax resist creates the patterns and the manganese speckles the entire bowl.
