Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: bowls

After my class demo last Tuesday night on making bowls, I finally got around to finishing them up tonight. I did a bit of stamping, a little embellishing, and a little refining. I also trimmed all of the bowls so they are set for the night. Drying for the next bisque firing.

One of the bowls during the demo was a flared out flange with a layer of white slip.

The bowl had dried to leatherhard so I trimmed the bottom first, and then I set into a bit of sgraffito. Now I don’t do this technique too often… but I thought it would be a good example to show my students. By the time I had finished carving it though, I must admit I might “need” to do this a bit more often…
