Recently, I started making aspen pitchers with cone 04 red clay. In order to give a textural look, I randomly pressed kitty litter into the moist clay. Then, the entire piece was brushed with white slip. Once the white dried, I made random strokes of black.
The pitcher was bisque fired to cone 04. A clear glaze was applied inside and out. It was fired to cone 05. The kitty litter adds a unique texture.
