Our work is created on the potters wheel using a smooth textured mix of porcelain and stoneware clay. The piece is painted with black under glaze, then carved using the sgraffito method, a classic and labor intensive technique of scratching a design through the surface. The black underglaze is slowly scratched away, revealing a beautiful texture, the design, and the white clay underneath. For Ginkgo Edged items, the rim is icised to create the ginkgo leaf rim. No two items will ever be identical.
