Circle Band 01

Circle Band 01


Circle Band 1 is an inlaid slip band that consists of large connected circles that have a smaller, dark central circle. This band initially cuts into the slipped vessel with a roulette tool. It is then slipped again with a different color and that slip is cut away. We record the final decorative treatment, which results in inlaid slip.


The genre for this stylistic element depends on a combination of decorative technique, color, and element.
