The Celadon family of ceramic glazes is often ideal for a vessel with carving on it. The glaze is intensified in the incised area.
I played with the idea of illustrating this with an animation cel, a scene from Much Ado About Nothing, and a portrait of Nia Vardalos, but that would have been both distracting and (in the worst sense of the word) precious.
Here are the words:
Clay & glaze can
CRAZE a clay man
Ends old ennui
