Last week, Mark Peters made a bisque stamp and used it in making a cup on the wheel. In this week’s video, he shows us his technique for finishing that cup. He accentuates that great texture using slip and glaze at the leather-hard stage of drying. He includes recipes as well as tips for success along the way.
There are some tricks to applying slip and glaze to leather-hard work, and Mark has a few tips to help you through the process. Below, you will find a pictorial representation of the video, detailing the trimming, slipping and glazing of this piece, along with his recipes for iron slip and shino glaze.—Sherman Hall, Ceramic Arts Daily
