Snow Day Slip Trailing


Snow Day Slip Trailing

My potter friend, Jane Wojick, posted a fantastic video on my facebook page by Charan Sachar, a master at slip trailing. Working yesterday during yet another snow storm in New England, that musical video jumped into my creative thinking. “Slip trailing is a decoration method. Slip (a liquid clay) is applied to the clay in it’s raw state, through a tube or nozzle, much like icing a cake”. This is a detail from a round platter that will be part of my spring collection.

Last year for Christmas, my brother in law gifted me Kristen Kieffer’s DVD Surface Decoration:Suede to Leatherhard.  Her slip trailing leaves me spell bound… She sent out her first e-newsletter of 2013 and once again I find myself entranced with her “ornately, elegant pottery for everyday”.
