I didn't realize what I am doing is actually called slipware. Seriously?! Really?! The only reason I put porcelain slip on stoneware is because I like to see white on everything and I can paint on it if I want to.  The contrast is appealing to me and the texture is fun.

The word of slipware has a load of history on its' shoulder.  And those history really has nothing to do with me.  Pottery to me, yes to me personally has no tradition, no history and no rule.  If it has any of the above, I'm gone.

Here I am mixing by free hand blue underglaze (no dry weight measurement for me) with very thick porcelain slip. Can you see the hint of blue? I want to do a bunch of latte cups with variation.
