carving a pot, the before and after ...

I have a little glaze experiment going today, thinking a particular color might look very good with carved pots, as I showed you yesterday with the teal ocean glaze.  I am entirely new to carving pieces, but have faceted them for years, or fluted them (basically straight lines with a special tool).  I want the same sort of line as fluting but more fluid, so I just grab a loop tool and….wave it along. Not sure what will happen, but I was pleasantly surprised! And think the glaze will look good here…. (this is the rough cut, later cleaned up)
