This first group of vases utilizes white Kohiki slip, over a darker clay.
Kohiki slip was used by Korean potters over their dark clay.
This unique multistep process forms crackles along brush strokes, exposing the darker clay beneath.
This allows glazes and stains to be added as well.
I love the unexpected variations in the crackles and expect to play more with this technique
