Day 90: 100 Pots in 100 Days


Today I spent most of it trying to mend electrical things, sort tax forms and try and sort issues with banks. I would never have thought that I would be spending so much time on sorting the mundane. But it is so.

What I would like to do is sort out the slip and make little marks on pots. I really want to get the yellow ochre into slip and then make designs that run into one another like the slip form Donyatt. I know they will not be the same but it is the influence I am looking for. 

Today I am going to share two examples of slip decoration and two examples of my own slip so you can see where I am and what I can do and where I am heading.
