Kris is a potter and owner of Fire & Earth Fine Pottery Charleston S.C. He not only puts up his excellent work on his page but also teaches pottery. He believes in a hands-on way of working having built his own kiln and making his own glazes.
We love his feed because of the colorful pottery that he shares and the videos that showcase different techniques. Every piece of his work is unique and that’s really something incredible.
Bottle with Finger Ridged Slip- ????"The longer I run"???? by @peterbradleyadams. I love this tune, so pretty and relaxing. Here's what I'm doing- First I threw a plump bellied bottle. Then later that evening after it firmed up a bit, I put it back on the wheel and added a pretty thick amount of slip to the body. Now with the wheel spinning slowly I gently touch the base of the pot, and as the wheel spins away from me, I run my fingers up the profile of the bottle. I then clean off my fingers while waiting for the bottle to come around again, and start my next swipe where my last one left off. Often I'll use a tool called a rib for this kind of work, but fingers are great tools as well, and create a very organic, loose design. Throwing with Slip decoration is so much fun, I love the feeling of the slip as my fingers glide through it. If you're into throwing pots, try this out, I think you'll enjoy it! . . . #pottery #clay #ceramics #wheelthrown #stoneware
