Ceramics Decorating Video: Beautiful Brushwork – Cathi Jefferson Shares her Decorative Techniques

Posted On April 30, 2010 31 Comments

In today’s video, Cathi Jefferson demonstrates the decorative brushwork techniques she uses on her salt glazed work, showing both the decorative process and the finished results after the firing. Even though Cathi fires in a salt kiln – something I (and probably most of you readers) don’t have access to – I was completely inspired to try some of these techniques with the glazes I use at cone 6 electric. You should too! (And send me photos of the results! I might just post some on the daily blog!)
