After I turned black clay into this vase I wanted to carve something around it, for a unique vase of my style. An elegant black vase would have been nice too, but there are many of those. I am a gardener and love flowers, roses it had to be.
After this vase was almost dry, I painted a white clay slip around it. Slip is liquid clay. Once again, I waited until the slip had no sheen on it, then the carving began. Pottery is often waiting for something to dry, just to the right stage.
