A twist on Terra Sigillata .

. A slab built box. Here i first put a copper carb. wash ( in the deeper parts of the surface ) and terra sigillata on before bisc. After bisc. i put on a low fire red glaze that i wiped off just so that the terra gets some color  and i get a hint of red to give the pot some life. The lower part has a darker terra on and just before glaze bake i sprayed  a solution of iron chromate and a frited iron  on to the work to get fine spotting on the surface and to accentuate the base line and handles.
