    Thanks for posting this! I didn't know about the carve and fill technique before :)

    Thank you Cherzer! I do a version of what is called Mishima. It is Korean technique, in which you fill the carved lines and apply think slip and later scrap it out with a knife tool. Some potters do the sponge version of the Mishima, one of those is Julia Galloway. I love her work.
