Rainforest Lantern

Designer: Kaitlyn Miller




  1. Starting with a leather hard wheel thrown cylinder, draw pattern in to surface with a pencil. Choose a simple shape to repeat around your cylinder to create a pattern
  2. Cut out shapes using a fettling knife, needle tool or Exacto knife- depending on how detailed the shape is you may need to switch tools
  3. Save cut out shapes to add back into design
  4. Add shapes back into design by attaching them to the surface of your cylinder by slip and scoring
  5. Clean all edges with a damp sponge or fingers to smooth
  6. Allow to dry completely
  7. Bisque fire to Cone 04


  1. Wipe bisque down with a damp sponge to remove any dust
  2. Using a soft fang brush, apply 3 coats of Rainforest (SW185) to your piece, allowing each coat to dry in between application and leaving the bottom of the piece clean of glaze
  3. Allow to dry
