hiding the joints in slab built vase

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Ive two questions which probably should be in different sections but easier to do as one.

 

So first is there a way to hide the joints between two slabs?

Second is there a way to make eathenware waterproof?

 

Thanks  for your wisdom, Julia

I'll reply to Q2, and leave Q1 to others.

Of course.  Most cheap(er) pottery is earthenware.  You just have to find the correct clay and glaze combination, fired to the correct cone.  But that could take a while.  Rabbit hole time for you.

There are some good handbuilding videos on Youtube that show folks doing what Babs described above with the thin coil. I found it helpful to watch it done. Usually I just save bits and pieces of the clay I'm using in a plastic  bag for the same purpose. I cut a thin strip or custom shaped piece instead of a coil. The less I handle the clay the less fussy it becomes, especially porcelain, and I can't roll an even coil anyway.
