I love experimenting with carving tools on leather hard clay. I use several tools to create the pattern on this thrown pot and then glazed it with dinnerware white, which is a glossy glaze. At first glance I didn’t love it. But it’s grown on me and I think the crudeness and slightly transparent glaze give it a vintage look. Tools are available online at any clay site but you can also use dental tools or some wood carving tools.
