Decorating. Sophie Milne wrote a post recently on how trivialising she finds this term as a description of what she is doing to the surface of her pots. I too find the word "decorating" inaccurate and a bit demeaning. I spent many years studying drawing and many more studying ceramics in order to make theses pots. "Decorating" implies a bit of frippery, something superficial added at the very end, something not integral to the vessel. What should we call it?
