The challenge of making it perfect in only one take
Trace ceramic plate is dedicated to a moment in the work of every potter’s work, and it is characterized by cutting clay that is still soft with wire. The traces that occur after these strokes are quite delicate because at that point they are still not visible. The only thing the potter then feels are movements within the clay itself, while shaping the form, i.e. stretching the surface, cutting and placing the clay in the mold require a skill. This extremely delicate procedure is challenging, given that the tiniest of mistakes means the whole process needs to be repeated from the very beginning.
