Adding texture to clay

The use of textures on the inside of the pieces adds another dimension to the piece. As if it’s a micro section of a larger object. It makes you think of individual hairs and pieces of skin. Adds to the grotesqueness of the piece. Also when glazed the indentations made onto the clay will be able to pick up small details of paint when the rest is washed off.
