When the clay is still humid the artist gets the design by using a tool to push clay back.

About the artist:
Now in his fifties, Isrrael has been doing pottery all his life. Recently, his more dramatic pieces are done as follows: when the piece is still wet he pushes little holes on perfect parallel lines, and then when the piece is dry he fires it on a tent of wood covered with a plant pot to get an oxygen reduction firing, the result is a striking matte black pot. On other pieces, he polishes it to get a perfect shin metallic look.
