Steps:
Throw vase from Navaho Wheel clay.
Coat with porcelain slip.
Dry until leather hard.
Sketch lion in pencil with a light touch to avoid disturbing the porcelain layer.
Carve (sgraffito) through porcelain layer into underlying Navaho Wheel clay to create the portrait.
Bisque fire, then lightly brush on Amaco HF-9 zinc-free clear glaze.
Final fire at cone 6.
