Secret Memory Box #2 - The Box Project - Oubliette

Started with a ball of wet terracotta; three small balls were made at the same time for the feet; left to dry slowly under loose plastic until leather-hard; the top was cut straight off and the inside was hollowed both top and bottom; a lip was fashioned with the carve-out clay to hold the lid on the bottom and attached with a little slip; the outside was cut into and the cuts were broken off to leave the jagged edges you see; a light blue engobe was applied to the inside; left to dry to bone dry then bisqued; iron oxide stain was applied lightly to emphasize the textures; glaze-fired to CONE 04. 133 more words
