I like decorating pots….
I sometimes decorate pots and jugs, when I get the chance. As you can see I like cats.
These were done at the Royal Stafford pottery in Burslem (straight sided jug) and Emma Bridgewater pottery (rounded sides). Both were done for fun in the workshops at the potteries using the glazes provided.
I would like to do more but I don’t have my own kiln, and I don’t have the throwing skills to make decent pots. Both jugs were slip cast (where you pour liquid clay into a plaster mould), the clay sticks to the mould and is then removed and biscuit fired before visitors to the potteries can decorate them.
