fase 1 - vase 1
It looks very mid-century modern, it must be the shape, the colours and of course the shellac technique.
Shellac is a natural varnish that has been used by man for ages. You 'paint' with shellac on dry clay. Your 'shellac design' will resist on your object. After you have washed away a layer of clay with a sponge, the shellac parts will pop-out. The non-varnished parts get a real nice sturdy surface, a concrete look. The shellac itself burns out in the firing.
Just imagine, this is one of thousands of ceramic techniques to be explored. I am dreaming of a sabbatical...
