Wax Decorated

Woodfired jars

Decorated Storage Jars The two Jars on the left have been decorated by painting them with hot wax then being dipped in glaze. The glaze will not stick to the wax so leaves the rough brush strokes as bare clay to be glazed only by the wood ash passing through the kiln. The ash also encourages the glaze material to melt so will change the colour and fluidity of the applied glaze.
