"Reposting from Kevin Kowalski's awesome Instagram feed! From Kevin's original post: "Decorating a flask with chrome green oxide on yellow flashing slip. In the 1800’s and 1900’s this technique was made popular with Mochaware makers. I first saw this technique when @ceramicartsnetwork featured a clip of Robin Hopper using Mocha Diffusion on his plates. This technique along with soda firing has influenced my work for the past three years." A post shared by Kevin Kowalski (@kowalskipottery) on
