Background of Dendritic Decoration on Mochaware
The seaweed-like pattern results from a dynamic process in which the contact line between two liquids, the acidic dark brown coloring and the alkaline orange slip below becomes unstable. The acid/base chemical reaction drives the instability. To make this design, the lathe turner removed the bowl from the lathe. Then he dipped his brush into the dark brown acidic concoction and touched the brush to the orange bands, whereupon the dark brown coloring ran quickly spreading to form the “seaweed.”
