Memento for prints
On the last 4 bowls, I brushed black slip. From the first carve I had a feeling as if I was carving a wood cut. Although, cutting a wood has a very special effect that depends on the pressure, and the deepness of the cut.

Now, I am waiting eagerly to see the results after firing the bowls. Would it look like wood cut, or the "unclean" surface, that has such a beautiful value in a print, will look just unclean on a ceramic bowl.
All the other bowls are ready for the cleaning process before the bisque firing.
Now, I am looking for a way to clean the little clay crumbles that remained from the cutting process, without damaging the delicate powdery slip.
