A while ago, I posted a photo and explanation of one of the ways I textured clay to make my pottery. The photo showed a cob of corn being used to prepare a slab of clay which was being made into a serving plate. Well, here is what the texture turns out like after it is glaze fired. It's very interesting when used with a glaze that breaks over the texture making different colors where the glaze gets thinner. In the upper center of the photo, the glaze is thinner, near the lower left corner the glaze is thicker and you can see the difference in how the texture appears. The glaze color is called Cream Rust because of the colors it produces where thick or thin. The variations provide a great deal of interest to a piece.
