Defining Space with Slip Trailing, Sgraffito, and Underglaze

Posted By Ben Carter On November 15, 2013 @ 6:46 am In Ceramic Decorating Techniques,Daily,Features,Video | 2 Comments

carterdecorating_620Ben Carter thinks about design at every stage of the game when making pots. When he is throwing and altering, he is specifically considering the decoration that he will apply later.

 

In today’s video, an excerpt from his brand spanking new DVD Design for the Soft Surface: Throwing, Handbuilding, and Slip Decorating, Ben shows how he uses slip trailing, sgraffito, and underglaze painting in his work, and explains the thought process in deciding where the marks go. Though Ben works with earthenware at the low end of the firing range, but the colored underglaze technique can be used at any temperature range with a suitable transparent overglaze.
