Materials: Silk thread on evenweave linen

Image Statement: A slab pot is made of slabs of clay, held together by slip---a mixture of clay and water. Here, slabs of linen are held together by embroidered slips. Potters' slip joins surfaces unobtrusively; I encourage the formation of ridges and bumps as I darn in the edges of the stitched slips.
