To make this one I wrapped a thick slab of grogged black clay around a wooden block and then cut through the clay with a wire. I wanted the wire to drag the grog across the surface to create a rough texture and that's exactly what happened. I then poured some white engobe over one half to break up the black surface. The little bit of red around the top was added to help define the torn rough edge.
