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.
