Wax Resist & Oxide Painted Pottery

handmade pottery

Below – two terracotta clay bowls that I made some time ago during pottery workshops I attend.

Both dishes are made using wax resist and oxide technique, one was underglazed before applying wax resist, the second after. The other difference is colour of the oxide.
