The last couple of posts I talked about the tall urn forms I am making, and the many steps involved. This next step is what I consider just plain boring! ( I think I need a book on CD to listen to). This is the part where I sit for hours rubbing away the clay which is not covered by the resist design. I cannot do them all in one day, I’ll go crazy. ( Maybe I should think of it as meditation instead). I take many breaks, as I have seven of these urns to complete, plus six little ones. I”ll take about a week to finish them, doing one a day, in between all my other work. Here are some photos of this part of the process. You can see the finished piece on my website.
