Using the stains to paint the clay body was like having a three dimentional canvas. I mainly finger painted this piece. Merging the colors patiently, it was a joyful experience. There is always an element of surprise when the glazed piece comes out of the kiln. So much happens in the heat on which the artist does not have complete control. This piece however came out of the kiln as I had envisioned.
