I use white Laguna B Mix 5 clay which is a white stoneware mid fire clay. After a bowl is thrown and trimmed, I apply slip which has been colored with mason stains. I then carve the design, using loop tools and a ball point pen. After the initial bisque firing, I glaze with lead free clear glaze and fire to cone 5.
