Slab pot

Here is another slab pot.

For the front and back sides I:

  1. laid over the slabs of clay a ‘mesh wire thingymebob’ from our gas burner under the barbecue (its always fun looking around the garage for things to make impressions on clay!)
  2. rolled over the top of the mesh wire with a rolling pin to make the indent into the clay
  3. painted over the top the black underglaze
  4. then removed the mesh wire
  5. on the sides I painted the entire surface with an underglaze and then simply made the pattern
  6. let dry then 1st firing
  7. apply clear glaze over the whole pot
  8. 2nd firing
