Three examples of texture, terra sig, and carved tiles

  1. Top left: texture from 2 stamps, streaks of red clay sig and white clay sig, and black stain from copper carbonate.
  2. Bottom left: texture from one stamp, cobalt and copper sig, with red from tile showing through; black stain from copper carbonate.
  3. Right: red clay sig with pumpkin and vine carved design; black stain from copper carbonate; only one wrapping of aluminum foil so lots of charring from the pitfire.

I haven’t added any shine with butcher’s wax yet, so you can see where the red clay sig shines from the buffing if you hold the pieces up to sunlight. And yes, I think the one on the top left and the one on the right are really an attempt to create my own pottery shards… I’ve also done a few scrimshaw-looking ones with white terra sig. It’s all fun.

Check back for: pictures of sock knitting progress, if the sun cooperates.
