When you make animated pots, you have to be sure the glazing and decorating complement the movement in the form. Nick Joerling does this beautifully on his pots by creating simple wax resist brush decoration to contrast with different glaze layers.

In today's video, Nick demonstrates this technique, plus he explains how he can approximate a salt-fired surface but using gravity to vary the glaze thickness. Awesome! - Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor
