I taught some students at Greenwich Community College the inlay technique, drawing through clay at the leatherhard stage with a sgraffito tool. Then filling the drawn lines with coloured slip, allowing all to dry, to give clear crisp lines when scraping off the excess slip with a metal kidney to reveal the drawn lines in colour inlay.
This is the student’s resulting work.
Stoneware clay inlaid with black slip, bisque fired ready for glazing.
Watch this space to see the finished glazed piece next year.
