Here I was looking into using oxide slips beneath the surface of the clay. I did some test pieces with slabs of clay, and achieved some subtle pink detailing where I pressed into the oxides. I tried these bowls by brushing slip over the oxides, which had some unexpected results. As the slip layer was a lot thinner than the slab, the oxide bled through a lot more reacting with the glaze and creating pinks, browns and even blues.
