firing soon

i've got a hallway gig at the Holter due on the 13th and I'm, of course, pushing the deadline to the very edge. Here's some of the new sgraffito pots coming along. How this works.. I block out the pattern first with all black, then carve away a design. My carving tools are pretty simple. I have three different widths so there is line and mark variation.. double sided steel end wide, the other end smaller..and the most thin line is a needle stuck into the end of a pencil. I'm planning to load and fire this coming Monday. keep your fingers crossed for good weather!


  1. WOW! absolutely beautiful! love these. I hope every one of them comes out perfect!
