I'm teaching a wheel throwing class on Thursdays now through the spring down in Bakersville at Arts Centered pottery studio. Today I'm going to demonstrate examples of texturing clay and incorporating it into thrown forms. These are some of my texturing tools that I like to use. I like to discover random tools that make interesting patterns. Sometimes the neatest textures come from the most unlikely found objects.
This morning I was able to put my new glaze test tiles in John's kiln, so we're going to fire it off tomorrow. It'll be interesting to see where I get with this next batch of tests.
