Burnished Negative Pottery



The technique to the negative consists in putting an engobe when putting the piece in the oven, this engobe is a natural clay pigment, which is impregnated and polished in a piece when put in the oven, explained the artisan. And once it’s done, it’s taken out again and decorated to be put back in the oven, and when it’s done in the second cooking, you have to take it out hot and give it an oxidation effect, in which the decoration is removed and below it is shaped like a shadow, exposed the potter.
