vinegar wash ?

updated sat 10 oct 98


Mark Joyce on fri 9 oct 98

On p.53 of the current (Oct/Nov 1998) issue of American Craft are three
pieces by Jaime Suarez from an installation at Taller Puertorriqueno,
Philedelphia, PA.

The credit line describes the material/process as:
stoneware, vinegar wash, oxides

Can someone explain what is meant by and the function of a vinegar
wash. This is the first time I've come across it.

Thank you!
