The texture and application of underglaze color create an ancient look to the piece. I use tools for the final shaping of the wet clay that have teeth like that of a saw blade. This gives me some higher and lower surfaces. After the first firing, i start applying color with a full wet brush. Underglaze goes down into the valleys of the texture. Then i come back with another color for the upper ridges of the surface and apply that color with a dry brush technique.
