NFP_Claypaint_divider

Slip-decorated earthenware, usually referred to as simply slipware, was widely produced in Brittan, Wales , and Scotland in the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries. The design techniques were highly defined and the items were produced as a luxury. Many of the pieces had elaborate scenes that included ships, moon and stars as well as birds and flowers. The techniques used with the slip were sgraffito, combware, and marbling. Wesley Muckey continues on all three traditions today.
