Marbling with slip

My attempt to marble slip with blue underglaze.


  1. Excuse my asking but am I right you are putting porcelain lip on stoneware clay? Have you tested to see if they shrink equally. Adding anything to e a bond? I like the blue bowl very much. Agate ware might also be fun.

    1. Hi Elaine,

      Thanks for liking my stuff. You are absolutely correct. Yes it is porcelain slip on stoneware. I apply the slip right after I finish throwing on the wheel when the clay is still wet. Have I tested i? I guess I am testing along the way. I have a few pieces done a few weeks ago and they are still looking fine after bisque firing. Hopefully, they won't crack or fall apart later.

      I didn't add anything for bonding though. Will try agate next time. I think I will like it too. :)
