- Begin with the leatherhard thrown vessel and make sure it’s been trimmed already if it’s getting trimmed (we used our brown studio clay).
- Cut circles out of vessel where you want the texture windows to be.
- Roll a slab out about ½” thick. Measure the size of the cutout window (if intact you can just trace the cutout piece!) and press texture mat into the slab using a roller.
- Cut a piece out about ¼”-1/2” larger than the window. Slip and score the edges of both connecting pieces, align them, and press together firmly.
- Smooth the edges together for a more secure connection and to smooth the interior of the vessel.
- Repeat until you’ve filled all of the windows and add any additional embellishments to your liking.
- Place under loose plastic and allow to slow dry completely before bisque firing.
- Once it is completely dry, bisque fire to cone 04.
Glazing by vessel:
- MT004 Swirls, SW-128 Cordovan, SW-204 Amber Topaz, SW-301 Iron Wash
- MT009 Scallops, SW-210 Turquoise, SW-203 Root Beer, SW-303 Manganese Wash
- MT011 Diamond, SW-111 Wrought Iron, SW-250 White Opal, SW-304 Copper Wash
- Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dist.
- Apply 1 coat of the wash to the textured part of the vessel and let dry.
- Once dry use a sponge to antique the ware by wiping the wash off the high points and leaving it in the details/recesses.
- Apply one coat of the wash to the rim of the piece.
- Apply 3 coats of both the interior and exterior color.
- Wipe the foot to remove any glaze that may have gotten on the bottom.
- Allow to dry completely.
- Fire to shelf cone 5/6.
