Item details

I love the technique of sgraffito. It is time consuming, but rewarding. It involves painting 2-3 even layers of underglaze then carve into it to reveal the clay. Some people refer to this design of mine as leaves or seeds.

Meet the Creator
I enjoy everything about pottery – from the tactile nature of clay and the therapeutic process of hand-building and throwing on the wheel, to the complexities of decorating and glazing. Regularly alternating between hand-building and throwing on the wheel, I have a loose idea of what I intend to make – letting the clay and the process guide me. Often the shape of the piece dictates what kind of decoration I will use. The mugs, vases, bowls and planters I make are carved and decorated with black or blue underglaze to create an original design. These intricate and repetitive patterns have been inspired by embroidery and textiles from my childhood. I truly hope my pots will bring as much joy to people’s lives as they did for me while I had the pleasure of making them.
