After the pot has been burnished, a fine slip and sacraficial glaze is applied in a random pattern. I then fire the vessel in an raku kiln and afterwards, place the glowing pot in sawdust and the white clay body turns black from the smoke. The glaze pops off and the resulting "naked" pot is buffed with a high-quality microcrystaline wax to preserve the sheen.
