Sue decided to make several of her decorated slab mugs
Here she’s painted with colored slip on paper. The trick is to now transfer the slip painting to a clay slab.
After a little more decorating the image she moves it on top a slab of clay.
Then slowly reveals the image by carefully and slowly pulling the paper back and the image transfers from the paper to the clay.
Here she’s cut out the bottom of the mug.
Now she has all the pieces ready for the mug.
Here’s some more images she was working on today.
More work on Shabories in my studio and then we tried a new technique.
This is the size of a doo-rag, about 24 inches square. This piece of cotton is folded in triangles and then clamped tight and the edges are dipped in stain. This is what happens when it dries.
