Pottery Video of the Week: Combining Stamped Underglaze Decoration with Shellac Resist to Create Gorgeous Layered Surfaces

Happy Black Friday everyone! Today we are bringing back one of our favorite video clips from the CAD video archive (so I could take a vacation!).


There are so many ways to decorate pottery surfaces beyond simply glazing. And when you combine decorative techniques in layers, the potential for creativity expands exponentially.


This past summer, the lovely and talented Erin Furimsky spent a few days here filming a DVD on layered ceramic surfaces. I was so excited by the techniques that Erin demonstrated, that it was actually a little bit torturous to be behind the camera. I just wanted to race to the studio and start experimenting! Today I am sharing an excerpt from Erin’s DVD in which she combines a shellac resist technique with stamped-on underglaze imagery. Have a look and then race to your studio to try it out! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
