Sgraffito Pottery: The following work is formed by hand, on the potters wheel or by sculpting, using porcelain or stoneware. The clay body has a very smooth texture, which is ideal, as it acts like a canvas for surface decoration. The pots are painted with under glazes and slips, then carved using the sgraffito method, an ancient and time consuming technique of scratching a design through the surface. After the decoration is complete, the pots are bisque fired, glazed and fired again.
