One of my favourite techniques is adding texture to a clay surface. There are direct ways of doing this using found items like leaves, seed pods, lace etc, but I also love making plaster 'prints' first and then use them to imprint from. The plaster draws some of the surface moisture away and leaves a clear, crisp imprint. These slab built boxes have been made using plaster prints to impress the pattern first and add visual interest to the forms.
I am a certified creative addict- having played with arty methods constantly since childhood. Now I work mostly in clay, painting and textiles - always designing and making new objects.
