Striated Vessel August 3, 2011

This was my first experiment with using multiple clay bodies(stoneware and porcelain). When I first threw the piece it looked much different than it does now. After the piece dried I had to spend quite a bit of time polishing the layers of slip off the surface to expose the multiple clays. The holes were at first a symptom of polishing the surface too thin, but it provided an opportunity for creative inner glazing. The glaze is shaner clear on the outside and cohen red on the inside.
