There are lots of ways to create texture on pottery, the most obvious being stamping the malleable surface. But Lisa Naples creates beautiful random texture on her work with slips of varying consistencies. In today’s post, an excerpt from her our compilation DVD Handbuilding: Texture and Surface, she demonstrates how her thin, thick, and thicker slips can build up different textures creating lovely surfaces.- Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
