"SyFi Marble" Ceramic pot with marble pattern by Jim Whalen of Paradox Pottery


Syfi was wheel thrown, burnished coated with terra sigliatta, a fine clay slip and bisque fired. it was then saturated in water and a random pattern was created with wax resist. The wax spreads and is then sprayed with soap which creates resist and holes on the wax. The salt is drawn to the unwaxed areas, the wax burns off and those areas become filled with the effects of the sawdust firing. Salt and sawdust firing create the surface imagery through contrast.

Dimensions are 10.5" x 8.5"
