Slip casting is a facet of ceramics that I am dying to explore. I love the idea of making multiples and exploring different surfaces on them. But I hadn’t thought much about the potential for decoration when colorants are added right to the casting slip. 

 

That is until Andrew Gilliatt came to town to film a DVD with us. Andrew does great work with colored casting slips and then adds even more surface detail with a variety of resists and decals. In today’s post, an excerpt from his DVD Layers of Color: Exploring Form and Surface Pattern in Slip Cast Pottery, Andrew demonstrates how to incorporating colored slip right into the surface design. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
