Easiest way to get texture and interest is to just dip the pot in glaze, let it dry, and sponge off the high points so that some of the raw clay shows through. You can also accent the high points by sponging on slips and oxides. kind of dab them on after you sponge of the glaze. There are all sorts of combinations of slip, oxides and glazes that can be applied in sequence. Have some fun and experiment around.

I have been doing ceramics for about ten years now, mostly as a hobby. I like to incorporate metal and gemstones into my pieces which I electroform. I develop my own glazes and try to keep to a waxy or semi-mat finish. I like the "arts and crafts" look and the subdued glazes they used on their pieces. Fire mostly to cone 5-6
Lately I have been working more on combining ceramics, metal, wood and even weavings into sculptural pieces.
