Sue was pretty excited about this kiln because there were so many experiments and new techniques in it.
This is vase is made by layers colored clays that Sue made.
This form is built over a slump mold
This is the piece I would keep, but I’ve been taking too many pieces lately and I have to let some of them slip by. Here Sue has used two techniques, on the bottom is the swirling agateware look and above that is a Nerikomi pattern. On the agateware clay Sue has wedged together two clays of contrasting color until they have marbled. The Nerikomi technique uses slabs of different colors, that are stacked, folded, pressed into logs, sliced, and arranged into to a form.
Here the Nerikomi is on the bottom and a colored clay layering
of lighter and light tones above.
