Applying Colored Slips to a Plaster Mold Before Slipcasting For Surface Pattern

Posted On November 14, 2012 3 Comments

I first saw the work of Peter Pincus when I juried the Potters Council Members Exhibition last Spring. This large bowl with a brightly colored striped surface fit the exhibition’s theme “The Chromatic Edge” perfectly. When I saw the piece (see below) in person when setting up the show at NCECA, I was blown away. And very intrigued as to how he made it. The lines of color didn’t seem stenciled or screen printed but they were so crisp. Well, in the latest issue of Ceramics Monthly, Peter shared his super cool process. Mystery solved. Today, I am sharing an excerpt from that article.
