A recent example from WoodFiring 268. The glaze is a copper green and has an overall robust and earthy quality. It is certainly an example of recent expressionistic work. I did a series of perhaps 25 of these; each is a bit different but all came through the firing with a wonderful folkcraft quality. The glaze quality in the interior part of the pot (place mouse over the photo) comes from a double application. This slight puddling is an enriching decorative effect and it in no way compromises function or strength of the pot. The patterns on the rim are achieved by a batik-like process called wax-resist. With this technique I apply wax and then sgraffito through it so that when the glaze is poured over the scratched pattern catches the glaze and where the wax is repels the glaze.
