Slip is simply liquid clay which can be used for decoration on its own or covered with glaze. This book examines the many techniques of using slips such as brushing, dipping, trailing and sgraffito amongst others, and uses contemporary potters' work as illustrations. It explains how to make up slips and engobes, as well as ways of using them at higher temperatures, both with and without glazes. The book is illustrated with working potters in action, showing their own personal styles and how they have adapted traditional methods to suit their work today in a modern context. As well as examples of techniques, there are many images of beautiful finished pieces to show what can be achieved.
