Jars and Canisters:

After a jar or canister is created on the potter's wheel, the alterations begin. The exterior is brushed with black under glaze and carved using the sgraffito method, a classic and labor intensive technique of scratching a design through the surface. The black is slowly scratched away, revealing a beautiful texture, the design, and the white clay underneath. No two items will ever be identical.
