drawing on vessels

the previous vessels with drawn images were collaged onto the side – this vessel almost has a repeat pattern drawn directly into the clay.  everyone has their own way of accomplishing a task – after trial and error the best method  for me has been to cover the freshly hand built form in underglaze before it gets to the leather hard stage – and to carve back into the vessel while the clay is still quite moist.  vessel#3_03 vessell#3 vessel#3_02
