Sprigs and slips



Wonder what this mad looking pot will come out like. Maybe too mad? Time will tell.



Here's the wet slip on the sprigs...........



and here it is as it's drying.

What gigantic jugs! I love the sprigging so much that I am going to put it on my to do list for my next session! I've gotta a steep learning curve. Great stuff.

how do you put it on so the slip doesn't mess up (or melt with) the clay? it has happened to me a couple of times, where there was no detail left after applying the slip...

nice deco!

That jug pic from the bottom reminds me of a Helter Skelter at the local Fair when I was a little boy. thats how big they looked when I was a little kid.

I really like this.
I use a lot of sprigs in my work and yours is very nice.

Could I ask a question, what type of clay do you use and why did you choose it? I am trying to decide if I should stick with stoneware or try earthenware.
