Thanks for your kind words Mel.  I haven't done any colored clay in quite a few years as my work has evolved, but I might get back to it.  When I got into colored clays in my first semester in grad school, there was no technical information available at all, and I had to figure it out for myself.  I ramped up pretty quick, and it was an amazing experience.  If anyone is curious, go to my website and explore the colored clay galleries.

a dark and light clay are slightly wedged together. the pot is thrown in the normal way. when you trim the pot and remove the surface mud, the two colors are exposed.  a deep cut is needed to make it standout.
anyone can do it.  Vince is a master at colored clays stacked, cut and used as decor.  It was put on the earth for very fussy potters...love the detail.
