stone and wood
As I posted earlier I am experimenting with applying clay (brick powder, local clay...) on the wood's surface. Other thing that I wanted to try was using ground stone. I started with slate as it is relatively easy to grind and it is also my favourite stone. In this case I am using Swedish slate which has beautiful purple color. I am quite happy with the the look and feel of the glaze like finish. Looking forward to try other stones. Here are few photos of the finished maple wood scoop.
here in comparison with Jan Pavek's pitcher to get a better idea about the surface
