We are fortunate to have such a great clay that is a dream to work with on the wheel. The bonus is that it is native to Nova Scotia. The brown earthenware glass is hand thrown, covered with a liquid white clay (called a slip), then sponged with a dark blue clay slip. After it has been fired once, the glass is glazed with a transparent turquoise glaze and fired a second time. Layering a transparent glaze over the blue sponging adds an interesting depth to the surface, one that you don’t tire of looking at.
