When I first saw Mocha Diffusion, an interesting way to grow trees on pottery, I had to try it. The first few times didn’t turn out the way I’d hope, like this creamer below, but I kept at it. I didn’t know why my trees weren’t growing properly until I bought a lesson on how to do it. I discovered my mistake and succeeded. Keep scrolling to see the finished cup and ornament.
I demonstrated howthe trees grew in this blog. https://thebutlerspottery.ca/2022/12/11/more-experimenting-with-mocha-diffusion-this-time-on-pottery/
Last week I tried it on a black and white clay bowl, with clay slip on the bottom half. I’ll show this bowl again after it has been fired it in the kiln. I looks grey and cream no, but will fire to black and white. Patience for me too, until my kiln is full of pottery.
