Etched Vine and Geometric
On this recent smaller size piece (also available at Blue Rain Gallery Santa Fe) I’m trying a new method.
A kind of scrimshaw effect ,etched into the fired surface of the shoulder and neck . The clay from the shoulder up has a much finer temper
than the rest of the clay body, but its the same Vinita Oklahoma clay that I love. I don’t do any sanding on these pots as many pueblo artists do,
Its smoothed and finished as i coil and then polished with a stone as the pot is drying.
