Slip Goo

I had this idea to cover the surface of this very big mug with white porcelain slip ...then I could use underglazes and get all painterly artistic about the decorating aspect of it all.  Yeah, good idea!  Except the slip was quite gooey and the brush wasn't really working.  I did the best I could. I went back and reshaped it a bit. It's drying now.  I'll trim and attach a handle later.

I couldn't help but think this would be a lovely teapot, so that's what I did. I ended up forming it into a teapot.


  1. What vision to think to change it into a teapot! It's makes an adorable teapot! And every piece of it looks just perfect. Good for you!

    1. Thanks! I ended up trimming the lid handle so it wasn't a bit wonky, and also took some of the white slip off the bottom and some of the top, too. Artistic license... lol
