Burnishing stoneware clay with a smooth stone before firing, was a technique developed by Native Americans in the South West—also, independently, in the Canary Islands. It was almost lost until revived in the last century by archaeologists and carried on by the Martínez family of potters.
After firing, the burnish can be further deepened by hand rubbing. Both the burnishing and rubbing can be used as a form of meditation. Hand building a pot is also a form of meditation, a centering experience like that of centering on a wheel.
See MUD PIE’s bisque fired pots, masks, figures, beads, and reliefs in the POP UP GALLERY in JULY.
