Slip Design Pottery

COBURN POTTERY 101:  Definition of Slip Design — These pieces are made the same way as my other pieces, thrown on the potter’s wheel,  then I brush a layer of colored clay call slip on them and cut any one of four designs in with a metal tipped tool kind of like a pencil. I then glaze them with the spodumene glaze and in the reduction firing the colored slip shows through the glaze.
