Carving technique

The carving and engraving technique.

For engraving finest needles and knives are used to cut patterns into the surface of the pot.

Here again a reminder:


When the carving technique is used, the motive is carved into the clay with fine bamboo blades or metal knives.

Here is an example of a pot made by me. The magnification of the motif shows quite clearly that the clay really is too coarse for such a technique, a finer clay would have been better for this.

Pot No. 013 - size: 25 cm x 17 cm x 12 cm
