Slip design over chattering?

Recommended Posts

In the March 2013 issue of Ceramics Monthly a plate by Euan Craig has caught my eye...and fancy! It is chattered, but I am trying to figure out how the overlain design is done. It looks like slip that has been shaped with a rib. I have done both techniques before but never thought of combining them. I cannot find any information on this combined technique by him or any other potters. What do you think?  Chattered and then a small amount of slip on top, quickly shaped so it doesn't soften the chattering below?? Or maybe slip trailed, with a very thin layer of slip in the leaves?  (The photo shows it with food in the middle.)

OOOHHHH!!  Are you all telling me that the design around the food is actually part of the food, not a slip decoration???  Some sauce with the sashimi?

Or are you all still pulling my leg!?

I now have a large plate, chattered and trimmed, waiting for bisque firing.  Was about to try adding a slip decoration over it. Worried, of course, that it would mess up the nice chattering.

I'm hoping for a few another reply to clear up my confusioin...

thanks

Thank you, Jeff!! Guess I look like an idiot.  Now I won't ruin my beautiful chattering by adding slip over it, but I just might attempt that with a smaller plate,  just to see what happens. With a very dry leather hard and a think slip, I'll see what happens.

Ginny C-

Perhaps slip trailed petal outlines with a “cloudy” clear  (much like the ones complained about in other threads) to fill the petal shapes? Just a thought-

Fred

frosty? Can’t remember the descriptor used-somebody help?
