RAKU SLAB PIECE - Bernard Leach lead glaze - reduced - 20x12x5cm - 1970's.

My slab pieces, as well as my slab pots have never been made by rolling slabs with a rolling pin. Nor do I throw cylinders, unrolling them after that. I literally throw the clay on the ground repeatedly until I get a good looking slab - with the thickness I need.

These slab pieces are made by slicing such a slab and dropping it on an edge, on the ground to get a spontaneous shape. Nothing of the shape has been hand shaped or tinkered with by hand - for natural looking shapes without any sign of showing off one's technique, going too far or even incompetence, I say no fiddling around with clay. The only expertise is directing and observing what happens and, in the end, selection.
