Today i have been mixing coloured slips for the detail on the surface of this piece. I combine natural oxides, found in rocks and the earth, with slip (watered down clay) to make very specific colours.
Mixing the slip, being very careful to stick to the recipe.
Each of these has a number which corresponds to a recipe in my recipe book. I am continually trying new combinations of clays and oxides to create new colours and recording my findings so that i can make them again.
