Just throwing up a quick post to show off a couple of pieces in progress in my summer ceramics class.
This is a platter that was coated with slip and then carved away to reveal the natural clay color underneath (there's an actual term for this but I can't for the life of me spell it right now). I love how the texture on the clay is reminiscent of wood as traditional Haida art was primarily woodcarvings.
This is a completely hand-built pot made from earthenware. Its been bisque fired so far, and needs to go through one more firing to be finished. It's roughly 24" tall.
