8 " Hummingbird Plate

I wanted to reverse the contrast technique I had used last year by carving though lighter slips to expose darker clay underneath.  The top colored slip is a lighter shade of celedon compared to the celedon I used on the white clay.  The contrast is more subtle and the darker clay body has some interesting variations seen as a dark speckle.
Although I found this experiment interesting, my next series will be on white porcelain, which will be glazed with clear soon.
