Pottery Video of the Week: How to Mix, Decant, and Troubleshoot Terra Sigillata

Jeremy Randall burnishes the terra sigillata surface of a pot.

There’s nothing quite like the subtle sheen of Terra Sigillata. That sheen, along with the beautiful combination of both vibrant and pastel colors, is why just I love the surfaces of Jeremy Randall’s work.


In today’s post, an excerpt from his DVD Slabs, Templates, Texture, and Terra Sigillata, Jeremy demonstrates the mixing and decanting process for terra sigillata and shares the terra sig recipe he uses. Plus, he demonstrates how to test sig for specific gravity to make sure you get it just right. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
