|Adding interior glazes, before the last firing...|
One day, while shopping with my sister, I saw a painting that made me stop and take notice. The painter had lined the canvas with bright colors, and then had white-washed out the color. There were many subtle layers. This family of vases has a similar finish. The bisque-fired clay has been layered with all of the underglaze that I recycled from my third grade classroom: random colors, sometimes even mixed together. Overall, a sloppy mess! Then a unifying white-wash cleans up the brushy colors.
