Surface decoration on black clay pinch pots
Having tried out the design liners on little black test tiles I've decided to give them a try on four little black pinch pots.
I really quite like the black clay except that it makes such a mess and doesn't work when you work with other clays at the same time. This clay is quite heavily grogged and isn't really ideal for little pinch pots but it was the sample I had ordered from Valentine Clays.
So, I have now covered parts of these with white slip to try out a black/white decoration design. I hope the slip is a good fit to the black clay. Here they are in the kiln waiting to be bisque fired.
