Pottery Mug thrown and altered on the wheel

This was a way i developed to alter, create texture and add imagery to pots thrown on the wheel, It is my own unique way of throwing mugs, which was further added to a number of other items.  The stamps are made from thrown cylinders cut up similar to the way I make my test tiles for glazes, the image is carved into the inside surface. When they are dry I test them on one or two mugs, once i am happy with the image I bisque fire them to cone 06.

I have a number of them i interchange, if they become too moist they stick to the clay, when thrown the piece it is really important to remove the slip from the surface.

give it try and have some fun
