Trying the Wax

I'm thinking again about using wax resist to mask out the areas on my pots where there will be no slip.  This will eliminate lots of scraping of slip and in turn eliminate much of the dust that I have to deal with.

Above is a pot that I waxed yesterday.  I'll apply a white terra sig today and sgraffito out the details in the Owl, branches, and leaves.

This weekend I am heading up to Bakersville, NC for Cousins in Clay.  I'm really excited to see all the pots but especially those by Sam Taylor.  Looking forward to a good time and some fantastic pottery.  If you love pots consider making the trip to the mountains this weekend.  Click HERE for more info.
