Achieving Atmosphere and Surface Layers in Low-Fired Pots

well as a slow turning electric wheel. Using earthenware in electric kilns, Sasha plays with
surface decorations that both depict imagery and mimic atmospheric effects. If you love

help you further your exploration in interesting spontaneous results.
